Bunch of fives book

A collaborative book project put together by The Designers Republic to celebrate the 5th birthday of Sheffield-based printers Evolution Print (who, naturally, took care of the printing).

The book features contributions from several well-known designers, including Vaughn Oliver, Erik Spiekermann and Neville Brody, as well as some lesser-known names. Manchester-based designer Graham Jones was one of the contributors (big thanks to him for the images);

We were asked the question “What does five mean to you?” and were told to respond visually. We were also asked to write 25 words to accompany the visual piece. That was it.

The black cover features a spot UV handprint and is finished with a sticker. Check out some printing and production shots here.

    1. Hi Valerie, you basically need to find a printer that offers “spot UV / spot varnish” as a service and ask your designer to speak to them directly regarding how they would like the cover files supplied.
