Annoushka Treasure...

This is a beautifully produced catalogue from a leading UK contemporary jewellery brand. Annoushka was founded in 2009 by Annoushka Ducas who was originally one of the founders of Links of London. There are now two London boutiques plus concessions in many luxury shops and hotels including Saks in NY and the Mandarin Oriental in HK.
The size of the catalogue is 165mm square. The cover is printed on Plike Black 330gsm, hot foil blocked in gold foil. The 76pp text is printed on our Omnia 150gsm, which is just simply stunning with the images used.
The pieces, which include many types of precious stones, are all produced from 18 carat gold, hence the way gold reproduces in the printed catalogue is incredibly important. Equally the solid colours, especially black which is used for many of the backgrounds needs to also print superbly ...and as you can see below, it does!
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.
The quality of the art direction, photography, repro, print and finishing is superb. The paper also happens to have performed brilliantly - fleshtones and jewellery details equally looking superb...
The below image really showing the sort of detail I'm talking about:
Even though it is a small size brochure it flows well and pages turn nicely in the hand.
The spine is 7mm thick and it is perfect bound with PUR glue. A very nice neat job as you can see from the image below.
Creative director is Annoushka Ducas. Graphic design is by the Annoushka in house design team. The excellent print is by CPI Connect with the project handled by James Howe.
