CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Often, the small, delightful details make a piece shine, similar to the way
unique buttons on a white shirt can give it an entirely new look. This book
explores 1,000 of these embellishments available to graphic designers across
all kinds of projects, from books to brochures, invitations to menus, CDs to
Exacting photography, which is accompanied by credits outlining the vendors
and materials used, focuses on these details. This book invites designers to
literally shop for ideas. Content is organized by type; if youÆre in the market
for an unusual binding, turn to the bindings section to see a wide collection
of fresh ideas.
Other topics covered include fasteners, graphics, unique materials, embossing,
debossing, specialty inks, type treatments, interesting color usage, add-ons,
die cuts, and much more.
