Fresh from our press is this beautiful book commissioned by The National Trust, in partnership with designer Dan Adams, artist Louise O’Reilly*, historian Sally Jefferey, and local homeless charity Spear.
Based on new research of the gardens at Ham House, and documents from the archives, the booklet takes a tour around the gardens at Ham House illustrating exotic plants known to have been grown in the 17th Century.
Rather than using a tinted paper such as Challenger Ivory, Munken, Olin or Redeem to give a period look and feel a smidgen of colourwash was added to the artwork, tinting the original white colour of the UPM fine paper.
“Dear Calverts, Thank you for doing a fantastic job on my artist’s book about the gardens and Ham House. I have just opened the box and am delighted with the print quality and result. We have all had those experiences of paying for print and being a bit disappointed by the result, sometimes even very disappointed. So I always open print deliveries with some trepidation. But this delivery was a delight. At every stage you have delivered everything you promised and it is exactly what i wanted. Thank you so much.”
