A Range Of Book Art
Innova Art has developed a series of “Book Art” papers in conjunction with artists, photographers, book artists and university lecturers, designed for the very specific requirements of digital book art and binding.
The coated papers have a robust, scuff resistant smooth or textured surface and have a consistent grain direction marked on the packaging to cut down on paper wastage. “No longer will bookmakers have to purchase oversize sheets, determine the grain direction and then cut sheets to the proper sizes.” Says Wayne Connelly of Innova Art. Grain direction is essential in book paper when folding, as the long grain needs to run parallel to the spine of the book. Each sheet has also been made with a consistent profile across the surface area to eliminate paper curl issues and allow the pages of the book to remain flat. The papers are made on a twin wire fourdrinier paper machine, which produce a near exact surface match on both sides of the paper, making the look of the book the same throughout when printing on both sides. As with all the Innova papers, they give excellent image quality and colour gamut, are acid and lignin free and compatible with dye and pigment inks.
The papers are available in two base qualities, Soft Texture 200gsm dual side coated, and Smooth Cotton High White 225gsm, 100% cotton double side coated. Cut sheet size of 665 x 920mm.
These qualities in the Book Art range are the first of its kind in the digital fine art paper market, and unique to Innova, who realise these qualities are essential to bookmakers.
Innova soft-textured, has a natural white finish with a slightly structured, soft-textured surface equivalent to a traditional fine art paper.
Smooth Cotton High White has a silky smooth surface structure designed for high quality fine art & photographic reproduction. Book Art papers are available in single side or double side coated versions to suit your book type.
