Stephen Ormandy — Only Dancing — Sydney, Australia
With decades of international recognition as one half of Dinosaur Designs, Australian artist and designer Stephen Ormandy has spent the last 15 years expanding on his personal artistic practice to further acclaim. Only Dancing is the first publication dedicated to surveying Ormandy’s vibrant, large-scale oil painting and the playfulness he brings to everything he does.
This latest Formist Edition is produced with a screenprinted PVC dust jacket, metallic reproductions, and debuts an original typeface, Formist Physical, based on the hallmark intersections and modularity in Ormandy’s work. Only Dancing is a tactile, elegant, and slightly mischievous take on the traditional monograph — an object that catches the eye and keeps it moving, much like Ormandy’s seductive paintings.
