This week we sent out a really great book (well, 200 of them actually) featuring illustrations – “Drawings Inspired by the City That Knows How” – by local artist Jeremy Fish. Most of us here at Edition One live in San Francisco and were delighted by the drawings. We ended up swapping stories about the dog-cat-rat guy and the tamale lady while casing the books in.
Casing in would be difficult, I was sure, because the hard cases were built with wood panels. But, of the 200 we did, there was only one tiny splinter to deal with. This project also called for a screen printed front and gold foil stamping on the spine, which was constructed with black leather using a quarter bind technique. Overall, I think it was a rather handsome effect well-suited to the contents of the book.
