Sample Book by Katie Schwab


Katie Schwab: Sample Book is the first institutional publication on the practice of the artist Katie Schwab. Copublished by Vleeshal and Dent-De-Leone, Sample Book provides deep insight into the period of artistic production between 2020 and 2021 that led to her exhibition at Vleeshal, small wares. The book brings together a selection of essays, an interview, a shape poem and a short story, which together chart how Katie Schwab’s research into Dutch darning samplers as well as processes of repair in textiles and civic architecture came to underpin a dynamic new body of sculptural works.

Probably some of the best books on the planet, and we say that as a publisher. We have always loved and respected the work of Dent-De-Leone – their originality and curiosity is second to none.
