Everyone is talking about Edmund de Waal’s The Hare with the Amber Eyes but in the multitude of press reviews not one single person has mentioned the cover lamination. This ain’t your normal lamination people. It’s super smooth. Like, I’m talking, super super smooth. Holding The Hare is like holding a naked newborn – soft, perfectly formed, tactile. And it’s no accident that the outside of this book is entirely complimentary to the inside. The book is a historical memoir following the journey of a collection of Japanese netsuke, themselves soft, perfectly formed, tactile. These small, joyful details remind us of value of really good production people. Hats off to the prod team at Random House – we salute you!
WelcomeArtypeeps is a network for creative people working in all areas of book publishing. Through collaborative projects and events we encourage people to come together and share ideas, experiment and form partnerships. In October 2011 we branched out and formed The Curved House (named after a Louise Bourgeoise piece rather than the house in Battersea) so please visit us there for any information about book design, production and websites for authors and publishers.
