ELLE Decoration Country – embellishes its production with Munken Rough

ELLE Decoration, the UK’s leading lifestyle and interiors magazine published by Hearst Magazines UK, has launched a NEW visually stunning, supersize volume containing some of the world’s most spectacular countryside homes.

ELLE Decoration Country is a luxurious bi-annual bookazine comprising 260 pages of idyllic country homes from a 19th century villa in Italy and sunny farmhouse in the Baltic Islands, to a modern gamekeeper’s cottage in the Cotswolds.

Printed on the distinctive paper, Munken Polar Rough from Arctic Paper UK, this large-format (320 x 247mm), bi-annual book is now in its 3rd production. All the 256 text pages are published on this toothy natural looking sheet as it has an incredibly tactile and extravagant feel and touch.

Printed by Cardiff based printer Westdale Press, the Munken sheet also gives great contrast to the colour, and excellent ink lift to this stunning production.

ELLE Decoration Country – is printed 4 colour process throughout using Flint 950 series inks. The Cover had a spot PMS colour – PMS8003. The book was printed on a Heidelberg XL 105 Speedmaster.

Rob Slowe, Managing Director for Arctic Paper UK said “Munken Rough has a unique texture that sets it aside from other sheets. It is a bulky paper, which gives exceptionally high quality four-colour reproduction. Munken is the ideal platform for all types of printed literature and its textured white surface is ideal for this prestigious bookazine. Furthermore, all Munken grades are FSC certified.”
