For Print Only

Two great projects from one of my new favorite blogs, For Print Only. FPO showcases their favorite printed projects and provides a breakdown of each project - price, printing specifications, time to produce, etc. It's a great resource - check it out!

The first project (above) is the San Francisco Center for the Book's Small Plates edition, Rabbitpox. The book was both written and illustrated by Allison Weiner. Only 100 books were made - I believe it was entirely letterpressed and was saddle-stitched with rabbit fur thread and housed in a handmade box. More specs here.

The second project (below) is a brochure made for Eco-Urban Homes, designed by Toky. It comes with series of individual cards, each which has been laser cut to create an interlocking house of cards. The cover was routed from bamboo and the whole brochure is bound together by a custom rubber band. More specs here.
