PRS for Music

The  Performing Right Society, now PRS for Music, was founded in 1914 to collect fees for live performances of sheet music. They are now a society of around 11,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers, representing their rights and by licensing.

PRS for Music pays royalties to members when their work is performed, broadcast, streamed, downloaded, reproduced, played in public or used in film and TV.

This brochure has been produced to explain the organisation, the way it works and give examples with case studies.
The size of the publication is 160x225mm, landscape and is perfect bound. The 4pp cover is on Marazion Ultra 250gsm and the 38pp text is on 135gsm.

Marazion Ultra was chosen mainly because of it's matt flatness. The vast majority of the text is dominated by the wonderful illustrations by Tane Williams and therefore to work in sympathy with illustrations, this wonderfully matt paper was chosen. This would reproduce the artworks well without a glossiness which can often detract from the images. Marazion Ultra is a simple but effective choice of materials.

The 38pp text is printed offset litho on our Marazion Ultra 135gsm, which is a bulky sheet and gives the publication a spine of 4mm, although as you can see from the below image it flows really nicely.
Design is by Cai and Kyn, a studio based in Epsom in Surrey. The superb illustrations are by Tane Williams

Print and production is by Richline based in London with Darren Risley handling the production.
