Jobs from the past - Number 107

Regular followers of this blog will know that my first post of every month is a "job from the past" so that I can show some of the really good work from years gone by and here's one from 2009...

Italian Textiles
This project is a collaboration between the Italian Trade Commission and Central St Martins with the aim of promoting the use of Italian fabrics by fashion students. The students were invited to inspiration from a specific period in British fashion history - the 1960's - when the majority of men, irrespective of their social position, wore a tailored suit as normal day wear.

Size of the brochure is 210x148mm (A5) portrait and is singer sewn. The cover is printed on a 350gsm cover material from that other "Hull based" paper merchant! The 28pp text is printed on our Colorset White (100% Recycled) 120gsm 
Colorset has a rough, tactile "toothy" surface but it still prints extremely well, as you can see from the images with fabrics and fleshtones below...

The excellent printing is by London based printer, Push, who are based in Bermondsey. The singer sewn binding is superbly executed....
Creative direction is by Rob Meyers at RBPM Studio. Photography is by Pelle Crepin.
