Tom Featherby, in-house designer at Make, explains the rationale behind choosing Munken Pure for the project: “Myself and my colleague Alice Bosc initially chose the Munken Pure paper for our 10th anniversary Annual as we were impressed by the quality of its colour reproduction for photography, which we saw in the ‘Heart Works’ book. Photography was the dominant content in the Annual and it was important that the projects were shown in the best possible light. We did not want to use a coated stock and Munken Pure offers an exceptionally good variety of paper weights, allowing us to use it for both the text papers as well as the cover. It also has an appropriate high-end paper feel when handled. Finally, as it is our 10th anniversary year, we choose Munken Pure as it is an off-white colour which we felt added a unique luxurious quality.”

Rob Slowe, Managing Director for Arctic Paper UK said “Munken is one of the most significant and established papers available on the market today.  Munken Pure was the ideal paper for this exquisite book. Munken is the ideal platform for all types of printed literature and its smooth white surface proved ideal for this prestigious work. Furthermore, Munken is FSC certified and produced without compromise to water usage, thus helping to ensure that ATP’s environmental objectives were met during the production of this brochure.”
