Binding & Finishing
For the Collector’s edition by Taschen released for Naomi Campbell’s 50 Years, we used all our experience and creativity to produce an object that was live up to the client’s expectations and have a timeless beauty. A hard challenge, but we won it thanks to our accurate study of the details and our passion for the perfection in realizing an astonishing box with angles of 90 degrees: like a treasure chest, it contains a double treasure.
We produced a cover in Premium tinted paper that give you the feeling of touching a surface micro-knurled. The Black Venus Naomi Campbell watches the readers from the center of the cover: her photo is a black and white image glued by hand on the blind blocking made on the front cover.
The books have two different sizes: the bigger on the bottom of the box and the smaller one placed above it. The two volumes are separated by a pink passepartout placed all around the box and readers can lift the books thanks to a ribbon in satin.
The printing, binding and packaging processes demanded time and concentration. We suggested to use a coated matt paper of 170 grams and we printed the books with high-density inks, having a very good pigmentation and performance.
We used our Offset machines and several other machines for folding, gathering, binding and packing the books.
Upon completion, we inserted among the pages a few fold-out pages, to let you give a closer look at the extraordinary career of one of the most popular fashion models.
This project is a real jewel to discover and “undress”, page after page, kindly, untie the satin ribbon and enjoying the pearls of beauty printed through the pages.
