Printing Design for Graphic Designers | Design 360° (Eds)
This handsome reference book published by Barcelona-based Hoaki books, showcases design projects from all over the world and focuses on the processes that were used to print them. The book opens with a thorough introduction of printing history, from the primitive seal rolls used in Mesopotamia more than 5,000 years ago to today's digital technology.
The projects are structured according to their printing specifications, which include cutting and folding, printing and varnishing, UV ink, thermography printing, thermochromic ink, screen printing, abrasive ink, solid colour-gold/silver ink, embossing and debossing and foil stamping.
In recent years, with the help of new software tools, designers have incorporated printing finishes into their work. The result is incredibly sophisticated effects applied to a wide variety of items, from business cards to record sleeves, books, posters and art. This new title acts as a global showcase for these treatments.
