Gerald Laing Graphics

This is a lovely exhibition catalogue designed and produced by Jalloro for London art gallery, Morton Metropolis.

The catalogue shows the work of artist Gerald Laing, for the exhibition of his graphic work from the last forty years, including some amazing screenprints from the 1960's

The job has an 8pp cover on our 100% recycled Colorset Bright Red 270gsm with a 116pp text on Starfine Natural White 150gsm with many throw outs which are required to show the scale of the work. The size of the catalogue is 190x210mm (portrait) and the spine is around 10mm. The Starfine Natural White was chosen (because it prints well ...but that's a given!) mainly because of the neutral white shade which is not cream. Given the nature of the work, a stark bright white paper would not have worked with variety of prints, especially some of the more muted colours.
Design is by Jalloro, who are based in London and the Creative Director on this project was James Robinson.

You can download the pdf version of the catalogue, here:

Print production is by Footprint Innovations based in Tunbridge Wells and the project was handled by Stuart Hillcock. It is a really beuatifully produced catalogue.
