The panel were unanimously enthusiastic about this book – ‘a genuine Gremmen design’.The pages of brown card are a demonstration of the designer’s command of typography – though it behoves us to observe that due to the use of recycled paper the cover does have a tendency to warp. The many fold-outs (all functional) are easy to open. The book has tremendous tactility. The photos, printed on the right paper, capture the atmosphere beautifully, and the details have been beautifully incorporated into the design.
