Cartiere del Garda, part of the Lecta Group, has produced the ultimate print demonstration with the book “Shades” – the eighth volume from the coated-paper manufacturer’s “A Better Project.”
Selected photographers take an in-depth look at a new topic for each annual edition. In previous years, their images explored spare time (“A Better Time”) and how cities can be improved (“A Better City”).
For “Shades,” a collection of 18 stunning photographs were printed offset on six papers (GardaMatt Art, GardaMatt Ultra, GardaPat13 KLASSICA, GardaPat13 KIARA, GardaPat13 BIANKA, and Condat matt Périgord) so designers can see and feel the subtle difference each paper makes on the image. The same file and color profile, along with the same CMYK ink densities, are used throughout for a true stock comparison.
Thoughtfully designed and case bound, the book transcends its practical application to become another wonderful coffee-table keepsake. Just gorgeous.
