Blog goes to print...

This is a very interesting job for many reasons. This is a paper edition of a blog and is titled 'otherhistories' - extracts from the blog.

In August 2009 photographer Christoper King was commissioned by the Historic Royal Palaces to be photographer in residence at the Tower of London for eight months.

During this time he wrote a blog and this simply printed piece of literature has been produced to accompany the blog and show his achievements in a physical publication.

The job is a 36pp self cover and the size is 190x250mm portrait and is saddle stitched. It is printed in one colour only (black) so all the images are halftone and look really effective on the Redeem 100% Recycled 130gsm - black and white images on a 'neutral' shade uncoated aften look better than those on a high white sheet. 
This really is a very simple but effective job. I believe it does everything it set out to do whilst being on a very 'realistic' budget! Design is by Steve Burgess.
