Bubblewrap plastic with perspex and Japanese stitching

special books

Nominated by Egyptian Book Designs of the Year 2009

Bubblewrap plastic with perspex inserted and Japanese stitching and binding.

Client preferred to write manually inside the special book. Therefore we have developed a partly printed book in which text has been written by hand later.

The pages are preprinted mirrored inside the Japanese bonded Reprobank® with red ink. The quality of this paper has a low opacity which makes it more transparent. Printing inside in mirror gives the effect that it is readable normal when you turn each page.
