Paper and the vast array of other printing materials are one of the most discussed topics in design today. Yet despite the growing importance of issues such as the environment and recycling, many creatives, graphic designers and printers remain unaware of paper’s potential. paperwork is the only book on paper to address all the special needs and interests of the print and design industries. It features sections on paper qualities, print effects, embossing, die-cutting, binding, pop-up effects, sculptures and paper products; and a comprehensive glossary of terms and techniques with practical advice on types of paper suitable for various print and finishing processes. Selecting graphic design work from around the world which is outstanding for its originality and attention to detail, the author surveys innovative uses of paper in corporate brochure, packaging, poster and invitation design, and more. The result is a revealing and inspirational reminder of the ‘craft’ aspects and potential of graphic design, whether using traditional skills or the latest technology.
