Short List 6 is the sixth in a series of sales catalogues for antiquarian book dealer Simon Beattie. In this edition of the catalogue we aimed to celebrate the books as well as the care and investigation it takes for Simon to find each tome.
Short List 6 took the theme of ‘Handled with care’ — displaying the stories and journeys around each book from their publish date through to coming into Simon's possession. The catalogue celebrates Simon's detective work; the stories he unearthed and the lengths gone to uncover each book's unique story.
The covers introduced the theme of 'Handled with care', inside the oversized catalogue utilised short pages to free up images of the books and add pace throughout the catalogue
Designed in collaboration with Paul Felton.
Short List 6 (along with Short List 5) was awarded a Premier Award and a Certificate of Excellence in the 2014 ISTD Awards (International Society of Typographic Design).
