We are delighted that Alexander Gardner: The Western Photographs, 1867-1868 has been featured in The New York Times 2014 Holiday Gift Guide. Designed by Malcolm Grear Designers, this stunning 180-page, hardcover book accompanied the exhibition of the same name at the The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The book written by Jane L. Aspinwall, with a foreword by Julián Zugazagoitia and preface by Keith Davis, traces photographer Alexander Gardner and his travels from Kansas City to California along what would become the Kansas Pacific Railroad. Gardner encountered vast and varied landscapes as well as tribes of American Indians. This collection of photographs serves as documentation of the Westward expansion as well as aesthetic additions to the world of Art.
“As beautiful as they are tragic, these images have never been seen in such quantity as they are in this book and the exhibition it accompanies. Conceived as a companion to the Plains Indians exhibition at the Nelson-Atkins Museum, [the book] stands magnificently on its own.” (Roberta Smith, The New York Times)
Malcolm Grear Designers has collaborated with The Nelson-Atkins Museum and Keith Davis on numerous photography books. You can purchase a copy of Alexander Gardner: The Western Photographs, 1867-1868 directly from the Museum.

The identity designed by Malcolm Grear Designers provides an identifier that is energetic, yet classical and elegant in its expression. The symbol suggests the two "a" letterforms while also implying other imagery such as brush strokes and the American flag.
The visual identity system is employed in online and print ads, posters, the website, brochures, name tags, and tote bags.
