Every year, the London Design Festival (LDF) invites some of the world’s leading designers and architects to experiment with new materials and processes in landmark projects. These projects are focal points for the festival and are often in iconic spaces in London.

One of the landmark projects for LDF 2014 is ‘Precision & Poetry in Motion’ by Barber & Osgerby and BMW, an installation of two giant, curved mirrors in the V&A museum’s Raphael Gallery. The mirrors rotate at the top of the gallery, reflecting and distorting Raphael’s Cartoons and visitors alike.

Domenic Lippa and his team have designed a book to accompany the exhibition. The book uses mirrored typography throughout, from its packaging to its content. Its cover is made of mirrored board paper, further echoing its subject.
