GREIG CLIFFORD - I
- with leatherette hard cover.
This page shows information about the exclusive leatherette hard cover
version of the I
photobook. Details on the soft cover version can be found here.
Obviously I wanted a limited availability version of the book to be
a significant product, with a production quality to match. I spent some
weeks researching various photobook makers... and there are some great
companies out there but one name in particular stood out, Saal.
It is said a picture speaks a thousand words so I decided to try to
show here the kind of details that are only seen under close inspection.
Spine and binding detail.
The cover is a black leatherette for its timeless feel, and designed
in the traditional way so that it can be fully opened without pulling
at the pages at all. Unlike some photobooks the spine is not attached
to the binding so it is a product that should resist many years of use.
Spine, binding and page texture detail.
The pages are a matte photographic paper which has a typical texture
pattern that prevents fingerprints from showing, and a slight shine
much like that of Ilford Galerie Prestige Smooth Pearl, or Fujicolor
Crystal Archive Lustre. The base tone with this paper type is a very
natural white. The pages are heavyweight too so will not easily crease.
Page shine and texture detail.
The pages are trimmed neatly as a solid block and the leatherette covering
is perfectly finished too with beautifully folded corners. Everything
one would expect from a premium product. The pages that line the front
and back covers are coloured black to match the leatherette, their opposite
pages the same.
Paper edge and back cover fold detail.
Images are simply presented with minimal distraction... just a thin
border with the title and year created written underneath.
Page print detail.
The dimensions of this book are 21cm x 21cm. There are 71 images in
