Here’s a really nice monograph of artist Olaf Mooij by Studio Beige. I particularly like the bottom spread which has the photos all fitted together in the top half of the page, with the text divided up into sections at the bottom. The monochrome looks quite nice too.
I think this is interesting way to display the table of contents as it runs down the page. I like the brackets because it helps you see where the contents begins and ends within the editorial. Its simple, but straight forward.
