Art Book for the artist’s collective “Stormy Petrel” – artists Alanna O’Kelly, Orla Ryan and Brian Hand.
This book formed part of their commission from the GPO Witness History public art commissions 2016 to coincide with the centenary commemoration of Ireland’s 1916 Rising.
The Client wanted a limited edition book of 500 copies whilst somehow retaining the distinctive feel of a one-of-a-kind artist’s book.This was achieved with a rotating accordion bind, broken up into 6 separate sections with the cover made from a single sheet of navy card. The reader is steered through the book, rotating it at the end of each section which is punctuated by the navy cover card. Reading the book becomes an interactive, physical process with twists and turns.

Porsha Bespoke Ltd. create beautiful, handcrafted bathroom products from the finest natural materials.For the catalogue we used a variety of paper stocks with lots of finishing production to achieve a result reflective of the workmanship and product offering that Porsha Bespoke Ltd are known for.
The 208-page catalogue contained 32 page price booklets that were saddle stitched with steel wire and inserted into a slip case pocket. We used beautiful grey linen on the catalogue cover and spine and the text thread was sewn in 16pp sections. An even layer of glue was applied to cover the thread on the spine to create a smooth finish. All plates were custom made using settings specifi cally measured to suit the catalogue’s paper & press settings.
We were awarded Small Printer of the Year 2017 for this print project with Porsha Bespoke Ltd. which lead us to win Irish Printer of the Year 2017.
Judges commented ‘The registration and colour consistency throughout was superb, with the design, prepress, platemaking, printing, binding, embossing and print finishing showing an underlying passion for perfection that led the panel of judges to a unanimous decision.’ Freddie Snowe, Chairman of the Judging Panel
