Richard Wright invited Thirst to conceive and design this auction catalog of the Esherick House, designed by architect Louis Kahn. Rick Valicenti directed photographer, Todd Eberle, in capturing both the sublime moments within the 2500 sq ft space.
Disciplined typography. Designed in collaboration with Wright’s designer, Jen Mahanay.

Colored pencil signals Kahn’s hand.
