It is impossible to avoid growing the collection when designers all over the world continue to create beautifully crafted and designed options for our shelf.

Project Description

A series of six beautifully-crafted notebooks featuring foiled typographic covers – each one features a collection of seemingly unconnected things but they share one common element: color.

Production Lesson(s)

Investing in foil tests was really important as I was convinced that pigment foils would work better than metallics. The contrast of the uncoated Colorset cover stock with the metallic foils turned out to be a far stronger combination (white and black use gloss pigment foils).

It was also very rewarding working alongside such knowledgable people who were so generous and forthcoming with their advice and support. Jonathan Savory and Richard Stuteley at Ambrose Press did a great job on the print, as did Justin Hobson of Fenner Paper, a real paper enthusiast! It's amazing how willing people are to collaborate and share ideas if you go to the effort of talking to them, build relationships and show enthusiasm for their craft, as well as your own.”
