Photo by Sammy Davis, Jr.

Photo by Sammy Davis, Jr. (Burt Boyar) explores Sammy Davis, Jr.’s great talent for photography—little known to the public. Across 340 pages, celebrated individuals such as Jackie Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and others are documented in beautiful detail. Duuplex was honored to be involved with this terrific project. We produced a design that is respectful to the images, offering readers a sense of discovery as they flip through the book. The supporting graphic design is carefully crafted and dynamic, featuring lively typography, and a bronze metallic ink that enriches the layouts. Duuplex also designed a custom two color geometric endpaper pattern. The book garnered a First Place Photography Book award from the New York Book Show.
