Since I am in Italy at the moment, I thought it would be fun to post about a book that I will try and hunt down while I’m in Milan. Seriously.
I love books, especially art and design books. I also love paper! Ooh, and graphic design. I am a certified graphic design geek. I studied it for a couple of years, but felt it wasn’t the right field for me at the time. So I went into retail instead. Crazy, I know.
But I digress. I came across this via Behance, and was immediately drawn to the intense colors. This tactile inspirational book made by Fedrigoni called Ispira Visual Book is a feast for the eyes! Fedrigoni is an Italian company that specializes in the production of fine papers for printing, publishing, labels, bookbinding and paper products. They wanted to create a book that would showcase their papers and various techniques in printing, but with no words. It looks like a bunch of folders, but as you flip the pages it looks as though each page would be a little invitation to inspect closer or touch. Take a look at these pictures below and be sure to check out the “Feel the Inspiration”video here too for the process in making this book. Go ahead, it’s okay, I’ll wait.
Isn’t it fantastic? I want to buy this book and run my fingers all over it. All images courtesy of happycentro.it
