Like the theatre arts that it celebrates, this commemorative book and invitation for the 2011 Ivey Awards held in Minneapolis/St. Paul is staged for a red-carpet experience that is dramatic, expressive and engaging.
Act One is a “dust jacket” cover (clear foil stamped and debossed with an ivy pattern with gold foil stamped type) that contains a diecut pocket for the round cornered invitation.
The Main Acts transport us to a golden chiaroscuro world that is beautiful, fanciful and amazing … 34 pages of full, rich ink coverage printed on uncoated Accent Opaque Cover; copy worthy of the best scripts for its ability to evoke place, light, texture and emotion; exquisite styling and photography that sends us flying from the heights of a box-seat view to the close-up details of fine architecture and stained glass, from the ruffled whimsy of a paper scroll ball gown to the wooly tweed of a pincushion maiden.
A very happy ending indeed with superlative performances in design, styling, photography, printing, finishing … all that’s left is the standing ovation and shouts of Encore! to all involved in this project.
Ivey Awards Book and Invite were featured as a Paper Inspiration.
