Pablo Mandel is an Argentine-Canadian book designer and art director. Born in 1970, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from early childhood he’s been fascinated and passionate about good books, the mysteries behind unread pages, and the beauty of elegantly typeset texts. Pablo graduated from Buenos Aires University in 1995 with a degree in Graphic Design, and is a Professional Member of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada. His book designs have been published worldwide and won several awards. He directs Circular Studio, an independent graphic design consultancy, and is the go-to art direction for ORO Editions, international publishers of architecture and art. Last but not least: Pablo is an artist, a musician, a husband and a father, and currently lectures at universities worldwide on book design, and teaches at the bachelor of Design and Communication at Universidad Nacional de Lanus in Argentina.
The seed for Hyparxic Dialogues emerged from a series of weekly conversations between Pomera Press’ creative partners, Professor Michael Grenfell and Pablo Mandel, triggered by discussions around Mike’s Bourdeausian explorations of the nature of the relationship between subjects and their objects. How is this elusive principle to be explored in the context of the visual arts?
Featuring photographs and creative design by Pablo Mandel, and edited by Michael Grenfell, this special publication will be offered in three distinct limited-editions.
