Book Construction in Progress

fullsizeoutput_53cCONSTRUCTION IN PROGRESS of Sydney Opera House Book.. As you can see Reg’s depictions of the Sydney Opera House are culturally fascinating and unique as is the story in this book about the  rich inner life of one of the most famous buildings on the planet.

The details become more and more special on this special edition. After many (expensive) and disappointing printing tests I discovered the best way to have high quality images but print small quantities at a time was to separate the black & white & colour printing.

 

Reg Mombassa & I agreed that this makes the book look like an exquisite children’s book from the turn of the 20th century. They had handsome watercolour illustrations ‘tipped in’ as they say. ..So add this extra fine feature to the  real bronze spine hinges & heavyweight ersatz concrete covers.
