The bookbinding cardboard by Eska only uses recycled raw materials, eco-friendly production processes, and a low-zero waste program. The cover by Favini is made entirely of material from responsibly managed forests. The Arctic volume ice paper used is produced by Arctic Paper, one of the most environmentally-friendly paper mills in the world. All the paper for the book has been FSC certified to ensure all cellulose comes from managed forests that provide environmental, socially equitable, and economic benefits.
This handcrafted, oversize volume feels heavy, like the weighing crisis of global warming. The imposing size reflects the profound responsibility of the project.
This limited edition, filled with striking images producing bold, expressive and intricate designs, reveals multifaceted engineering solutions complete with detailed explanations and diagrams. Graphite hot foil stamping displays handcrafted artistry on the glossy black cover by Favini Classy Covers. Only 100 limited edition books are personally signed and numbered: the custom slipcase with hot foil stamping and fortified construction make it a collector’s edition.
