“The book has Swiss-watch precision,” was the client’s verdict on the 2,500 copies of Giacometti Without End.


Book Printer of the Year: Pureprint Group

Judges, looking for high-quality printing, precision binding and impeccable finishing, were not disappointed in the printer. It has secured a hat trick of wins in this category. Pureprint delivered again with each of the 1,250 copies of the George Condo Book. Like the best book, a perfect production narrative has a beginning, middle and end: pre-press measures included colour correcting 16 painting images and their details; printing involved spot silk varnish over the images on 200gsm matt rounded off with a cloth wrapped hardcover foiled in black to ensure a thrilling end. Then came the epilogue: “An exceptionally good entry,” said the judges. “Outstanding submissions, good use of papers, lovely execution.”

Highly commended

The build-up to print can be challenging. The Canary Wharf book had languished on a designer’s screen for months before Push Print entered the fray with two weeks to a big presentation. After proofing, 200 books were put together in four days, and all were delivered at 7.30am on the dot for the key meeting. The judges’ minutes read: “Great skill and ingenuity and great use of paper and cloth.”
