Looks best in Japanese

The Scream

This book was produced for Pen Canada.  The book was produced by Neil Stewart, 11 ink scans and colour separations were produced by Doug Laxdal.

In this case the artist used a combination of watercolours, found pigments, and fluorescent paints to create the illustrations for the book.  The challenge was to reproduce the flourescent pigments using PMS 8000 series flourescent litho inks.  The images were scanned on a drum and colour separations were created manually with selections and masks.

The book was smythe sewn and case bound with a two colour foil stamped black cloth half wrap and a litho wrap cover.  The book includes a wrapped slip case, a watercolour paper giclee with a blind deboss, a letterpressed print contained in a blind debossed folder.
