MANUELA by Annoushka

MANUELA is an individual collection from leading contemporary jewellery brand Annoushka. This is the result of a collaboration between sculptress Manuela Zervudachi and company founder Annoushka Ducas who have been friends since childhood. The pieces are beautiful and amazingly fine - all made from 18 carat gold.

This is the lookbook for the collection. Size is A5 (148x210mm), portrait. The cover is made using a rough Calico bookcloth in a natural colour, simply foiled in black on the outer. It has been mounted on our Omnia 280gsm. Text is 16pp of our Omnia 150gsm which is just simply stunning with the images used. The finishing is "saddle stitched with brass wire (closest to gold staples you can get!) - absolutely beautiful.
Lovely pencil illustrations on inside of cover (above)
Reproduction of the metallic gold on the Omnia 150gsm is just superb. Excellent detail and a beautiful metallic sheen which is as close as you can get to the real thing. 

Designer on the project is Jennifer Campbell-Colquhoun.  Printing (...and the tricksy bookcloth mounting!) is by Push. Thanks to Jenny for the lovely note, which as you can read, mentions that they used our Clervaux as a background paper on the photoshoot!
