Paper with the Soul of Rock and Roll

Today I was recently gifted with a product sample book from Sappi. The collector’s book was created by Sappi to highlight the stock that it was printed on: Opus; Paper with the soul of Rock & Roll. This publication features the work of Baron Wolman during his career with Rolling Stone Magazine in the late 60’s and 70’s. The portraits that are featured in the book are of artists such as Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin, and The Rolling Stones, to name a few. This book is definitely a keepsake for anyone that loves Rock & Roll and was beautifully crafted and the paper itself is a lovely stock with a nice smooth feel.

Inside the oversized flat mailer was the book that featured a poster which was folded around it as the book cover. The book itself is square like a vinyl case and has the texture of a vinyl record. This was done with 4 Color HD Ink, Reticulating UV Varnish and overall Gloss UV Coating on 130# Sappi Opus gloss cover. The body of the book was printed on Sappi Opus 100# dull text with 4 Color HD Ink, UV Varnish and spot dull UV Varnish.

Here is a little bit about Opus:

“Opus offers the broadest range of weights and finishes across sheet, web and digital formats. The family tree includes Opus PS, a solution optimized for direct mail—with superior glueability, fold-ability and caliper guarantees for predictable postage costs—and Opus Digital, which is optimized to perform across digital printing platforms. With unrivaled versatility, Opus delivers the right impression on multiple touchpoints.”

Below are some images of the book:
