This monograph of Portuguese artist, Ilda Reis, features pages embossed with details from the artist’s works. Flúor Design used lighter weight coated pages for the text section to contrast heavier uncoated paper in the portfolio section. Thanks to subtle design decisions like these, coupled with the popular decision to keep the design understated so the artist’s work is at the forefront, this book is a classy presentation of Ilda Reis’s oeuvre.

Project Description

“Ilda Reis -- Tempo de Vida” is a book about the complete work of the Portuguese artist Ilda Reis (1923-1998) who dedicate her life to engraving.

The book design reflects that artistic technique through several production detais: the cover it’s not printed, just with the name embossed. The endpapers are also embossed with a detail of an engraving work from the artist (they’re not printed). We also use two diferent papers: coated for the portfolio and uncoated for the texts.

Production Lesson(s)

We were proud to design and produce this book. In the end we’ve got the feeling that it would be better to reduce the uncoated paper to 100grs used for the text pages. This way we could create a bigger difference from the coated paper used for the portfolio of the artist.”
