LCM Examinations Brochure

The London College of Music was founded by G Augustus Holmes in 1887. The College actually began as an examining body, but a teaching element was then created early in it's history. The LCM awarding body is the University of West London and this is the literature which explains the history, syllabus and accreditations.

The size of the brochure is 210x210mm, square, saddle stitched and features a 4pp cover printed on Omnia 280gsm with an 8pp text printed on Omnia 150gsm.
Omnia was chosen because it would work with the rich detail that is present in the images but that would still give a natural look and tactile feel. As you can see from images, some of the photography is quite dark, but there is no loss of detail, which is what can often happen printing on an ordinary uncoated paper.

Printed offset Litho throughout plus a dark grey special.
Printing is by Dayfold, who are based in Dorset, with David Crompton handling the project. Dayfold have made a superb job of it - colour reproduction and solids are excellent.
