The austerity and grandeur in the design of some books, especially art catalogs, is primarily a visual and tactile pleasure that lasts over time. This paper proposes a classification of the different types of art catalogs as unique tools for the understanding of artwork. This classification is developed from the technical parameters and the tools of media publishing: typography, graphic design, photography.

Keywords: Art Catalogs, Aesthetics, Books, Typology, Graphic Design, Bibliographic Resources
