'What is this thing of whiteness?'
We have designed Edmund de Waal’s new book The White Road, and produced the exhibition graphics for White, a project in the Royal Academy Library.

'From classical Greek statuary to a marble lantern by Ai Weiwei, and from Kazimir Malevich’s Suprematist Teapot to porcelain pots by de Waal, diverse artworks united by the colour white await discovery alongside little known parts of the Academy’s own collections, including J.M.W. Turner’s porcelain palette. Interspersed amongst the library’s shelves and cabinets, these unexpected encounters invite a quiet and serendipitous journey of discovery.' (Royal Academy)
