The basketball hoop represents the pivot around which this romantic research revolves. Like an atlas, the book presents a collection of photographs from places around the world, taken directly on-site by the artist or his friends, and with the help of Google Earth Pro.

The difference between the two typefaces creates a great tension in the book. On one hand, Zakład is very bold, massive, and almost brutalist, and it is the main link to the playground basketball world. On the other hand, Editorial New is a classic, condensed serif font. This combination establishes an unusual relationship and an interesting balance.

Basketball Hoops – Ball don’t lie was self-published in a first edition of 150 copies.
