Surface View

This is an exquisite piece of literature for a company who's business is all about image.

Surface View is an enterprise who are in the business of collaborating with designers and architects to produce bespoke images installed in buildings, spaces, businesses and homes, either as murals, mounted prints, blinds, textiles or a host of other substrates.

This brochure, titled "Handbook" is about what they do and the way they work. With image reproduction being such an important part of their business, it was essential that everything reproduced amazingly! The text chosen for the project is Omnia 120gsm - chosen because the imagery from Marvel to Getty Images to the V&A looks brilliant. The 270gsm cover material is from the other well known, Hull based paper merchant, in Smoke Grey.

Size of the book is 172x240mm, portrait format, section sewn binding. The 4pp cover is silkscreened in white, 50pp text is printed in CMYK throughout - with some particularly good four colour black and white images.

Design is by Ben Stott and it is superb. Print is by Push and it is also superb. Not a lot more to say other than I have used the word "image" six times and "superb" twice in this one post ....but hey, who's counting?
