After many hours of careful planning design and oodles of Creative Magic – we are really excited to share it with you. The Box of Magic has been designed not only to show off all of the different binding techniques available, but also to inspire you when you are creating projects of your own for your clients. Its been created to demonstrate to you what is possible with binding and foiling and the huge selection of options available to you. We hope you will love it as much as we loved creating it!
Below we have given you a bit more insight into each piece magic that makes up our ‘Box of Magic’.
The Magic Cloak is most commonly used for restaurant menus. This example is thermo debossed on the cover, which creates a great design effect. The cover can be enhanced with silver or gold corner protectors, eyelets, with a treasury tag to hold the pages in place.
The ‘Blind Fold’ book is constructed as a layflat case bound with and internal gatefold page. The cover is silver foiled with an iridescent foil which creates a fabulous finish. There are countless foils now available, so you don’t just have to stick to the silver and gold of old, so why not try something different?
Our ‘Total Reveal’ example, shows our naked Swiss-bound binding technique, the inside pages are section sewn. Revealing something a little different on the inside.
‘Invisible Realm’ shows our slip cases which have a recess making it easier to access the books inside.
The ‘Magical Rainbow’ Books shows how layflat can be combined beautifully into a soft bound book, with a printed material cover. This sample has also been interleaved with rainbow coloured pages, which are only visible on the edge of the page – just lovely!
Saving the best till last. This ‘Book of Spells’ is one of our favourites, a soft bound and singer sewn book stitched to the spine. Great touchy-feely cover with a heat deboss!
