The Shakers:
From Mount Lebanon to the World

Published by Rizzoli | Skira
Designed with Abbott Miller (CD), Pentagram

The Shakers presents the austere and simply styled objects of the Shakers in the context of their faith and community at Mount Lebanon. Environmental photography illustrates the landscape and spaces in which the objects were crafted and used.

A symmetrical grid shapes the foundation for type and image, an expression of the overt symmetry used in Shaker design.

The stories, images, and objects of the Shakers are sewn together and hung from a common line, a reference to the iconic peg rails that border Shaker spaces. A silhouette of the rail is stamped on the book's board, forming a visual logic for the interior.
