We have teamed up with international style and design publication Wallpaper*, for the second time running on the award-winning Custom Covers project, for the Handmade Issue.
The August 2012 issue of Wallpaper* features 30 unique covers created by several top name designers including Quentin Jones, Tom Hingston and Rob Ryan. The custom covers were each printed on Stucco Old Mill 280g/m, a subtle felt marked paper with a lightly treated surface. The unique Stucco surface treatment lifts the rich colour of each image on the Handmade issues.
This special issue will also exclusively present all the handcrafted pieces commissioned for the magazine’s Handmade exhibition, which took place at the Brioni Palazzo in Milan during Salone del Mobile in April 2012. Highlights from the exhibition included; ‘Convertibles’, folded paper objects by Irma Boom, and ‘Sew your own’ stationery by Michael Nash+Sion, both produced using our stocks.
The full story of how the Handmade project came together, from initial discussions to production, will be told in the August issue of Wallpaper*, out now!
