Keeping things simple inside with straightforward CMYK offset printing, I wanted the cover to have a special twist. Since I had made a paper cutout version of the FPO (blog) logo to use as the FPO Awards logo and really liked how it looked big I wanted to translate that to the cover, so the paper logo wraps around from the back cover through the spine and into the cover. But not only did I want you to see it, I wanted you to feel it. With a spot UV sandpaper varnish against a satin-ish paper stock, the paper logo feels like, well, paper. Since you can’t touch it through our site, I’ve made a little video where you can hear it.
