Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration

Amelia Gregory is founder, writer, publisher, photographer, reviewer, designer, art director  ( fact just about every job you can think of) of what has become known as an independent publishing  phenomenon - Amelia's Magazine.

Fenner Paper supplied most of the paper used over the five years and ten issues that were produced and it was always a pleasure working on each issue as the publications had the highest production values - one even using Swarovski crystals mounted onto the cover!  Amelia published her last printed magazine publication about two years ago in favour of concentrating her efforts on the website, blogging and twitter with great success! ...the Amelia's Magazine website has again been voted into the top 25 Arts and Culture blogs by Creative Tourist.

The good news is (for us and for you) that paper hasn't been completely shelved! Last year she published Amelias Anthology of Illustration Magazine which is a 264pp compendium of illustration, interviews, articles and reviews - in fact Amelia has billed it as "a book to inspire creativity in the climate of change". It is a lovely book and still available on her website. I should also mention that it's printed on our Marazion Ultra 135gsm.

And now she is in the throes of producing Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration - or ACOFI as she has affectionately termed it on twitter.

It has been 'on press' all last week down at the printers, Principal Colour in Paddock Wood in Kent and here are some pics of the proof sheets that Amelia took with her iphone as she went through them.
It's printed on a special making (which is an 'ex-mill' item only) of an uncoated paper with a good bulk, high opacity and whiteness, called Tallistag Hi-Bulk in 100gsm and as you can see from the pics above, the colours have worked really well, very vibrant.

The proofs do look really great and you can order your copy of ACOFI on line - for Christmas delivery and make all her hard work worth it!
