When it all comes together, it’s like a work of art. And it has all come together this year for Pureprint. Of all the categories the Sussex printer is shortlisted in, this shows it at its consistent best, producing breathtaking quality across print and finishing for clients that demand the utmost in reproduction. Entries included Frankenthaller, Giacometti, Klein, Peter Willberg Ai Weiwei and Picasso Minotaurs and Matadors.
“The jacket detail and accuracy on the Frankenthaller book was beyond excellent - I was almost lost for words,” gasped one judge. The richness of colour and texture complemented by stochastic screening was good. But coupled with use of paper with the right grain direction and cold-glue binding to help the open book lie flat made this a near-perfect composition for a near perfect year for the Uckfield printer.

What kept Pureprint off the top spot for the past three years was Push Print. A book on the Bolshoi Ballet and one featuring self portraits of Raqib Shaw wowed judges who praised an “astounding attention to detail across the board”. The Ofili: Weaving Magic book marked installation of a tapestry by Turner prize winner Chris Ofili and proved a wonderful curtain riser at the National Gallery.
