Smells Like Fresh Print: Curious Metal — Yin/Yang by B&F Papers

4 years ago by

Brought to you by B&F Papers, the Smells Like Fresh Print series celebrates the beauty and tactile qualities of recently created, selected print projects. This week we share and celebrate B&F Paper’s own recent award-winning publication Yin/Yang, featuring the Curious Metal paper range. Congratulations B&F for your Bronze in the Colour Award/Graphics at this year’s Best Awards!

“The Curious Metal range is a collection of vibrant metallic and iridescent coloured stocks. Immediately, we were drawn to the uniqueness of the paper and its distinctive printing surface and how one colour not only complemented another but also how the colours contrasted. A concept began to evolve around the idea of duality. The book jacket and book cover mirror each other down through the layers, echoing the cyclical nature of duality featured throughout the book.” Supply
