Bert, His Dog, our God: art collection book printing

Foiledspine

Quarter-boundWibalin 'Paris Blue'

Portland Gallery is one of London’s leading Art Galleries, dealing in modern British and contemporary paintings. They wanted to create an eye-catching and high-quality book to display the work of one of their most popular artists, Gary Bunt.

Bunt’s collection featured the artist’s interpretation of the New Testament, conveyed through paintings and poems, and was presented during a tour of the country’s cathedrals. It was essential that this book accurately reproduced the artwork and was also robust enough to endure repeated use in churches, schools and homes.

Park advised the client through every step of this production, including the design, materials, thickness of the case board, and post-production finishes.

White paper dummies of the book were prepared to enable size accurate artwork, which were also foiled to ensure that the foil would take well to the cloth which was used for the quarter binding.

Epson proofs were also supplied to ensure that the imagery and colours were reproduced perfectly, and we retouched images to meet the customer’s requirements.

The text was printed sheet work – where the two sides of each page are printed separately – to achieve the highest quality reproduction.

The special colour PMS silver 877u on the end papers continued the colour theme from the grey metallic silver foiling on the book’s spine.

A protective coat was added to protect the pages from repeated handling.

Thanks to our expertise and experience in printing high quality books and reproducing artwork, Portland Gallery entrusted Park to press-pass on their behalf, resulting in a visually attractive production which perfectly reproduced the artist’s imagery.
