Museum: A House for Learning by Péter György combines slick design with rich culture

In 2013, the editorial board of MúzeumCafé, the magazine of Hungarian museums under the editorship of the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, launched a series of non-profit books on the museum profession. The publications included studies by Hungarian museum professionals, academic staff and researchers, and university professor, Péter György, was commissioned to write the first volume.

To produce the book, graphic design agency, Lead 82, and typography expert, Viktor Suszter, were brought in to help provide a fresh, contemporary spin on classic "Hungarian book culture". The result is an award-winning publication.

The judging panel for the German Design Awards said: "The volume Museum – A House for Learning is an elaborate, wonderfully diverse museum book that is nonetheless consistent in its no-frills design, and boasts beautiful typography and an attractive layout. This medium is an excellent choice for such a major work and adeptly takes up the tradition of bookmaking while remaining refreshingly imperfect. This catalogue is a feast for the eyes and illustrates why beyond the world of e-books there is strong justification for splendid printed works."

The book is printed with the use of FM halftone screening, duplex printing and the application of Pantone Cool Gray 8U and Pantone 805 U direct colours. Discover more at
