Just before the New Year, we printed Young Colossus, a visual narrative to accompany a mini album by Orlando Weeks. The accompanying CD of music tells the story of the characters in the book which was painstakingly illustrated by Robert Hunter.
We were intrigued to find out that Orlando is lead singer of The Maccabees, whose third album Given to the Wild was number one last week.
The book is designed and printed in three pantone colours, and printed on lovely Munken Pure stock on our Heildelberg 72F litho press, using Bio vegetable oil based inks, under Calverts ISO140001 environmental management system.
The booklet was finished with an eight page gatefolded cover, with die cut slits to hold the CD, and devilishly handsome black staples.
