Print expert finds creative niche
December 15, 2009 by Michael
Business was quieter this year for print expert Andrew Wilson. Andrew is best known for his technical titles and he is more used to helping people with their printing requirements. However, Andrew possesses a great love of photography as well as his great expertise in print. He has combined his technical ability with his creative ability and produced a beautifully printed book.
The book features scenes of favourite nature walks and rambles, and images of Richmond Park. The book is entitled ‘Wild in the City’. Mr Wilson has always had a keen interest in nature and photography and says:
This experience has been one of the best things I have ever done and I only wish I had started years ago
Despite being heavily involved in print as an expert Mr Wilson found the experience:
…quite nerve-wracking having my own work produced
Despite the nerves, Mr Wilson is delighted with the finished product and feels it has made the whole experience worthwhile. The experience will no doubt help him with the kind of concerns creative people have with the reproduction of colour work. Technical information For Mr Wilsons book is as follows:
The 132pp title was printed on by Pensord Press on 170gsm gloss stock supplied by Denmaur Independent Papers and finished at Folio Bristol. Colour management advice was provided by Paul Sherfield from the Missing Horse Consultancy.
If business is a little quiet for you, perhaps you might consider perusing your creative interests for a while. It was certainly fulfilling for Mr. Wilson.
