here first, as a reminder, the basic ingredients for good composition in film –

PLACEMENT + READABILITY golden section/rule of 3/triangle

‘VISION – color and composition for film’ was printed in singapore, using a relatively new printing process – STACCATO printing.

as you can see the new method of a very sophisticated texturing instead of the before used halftone printing process results in nearly photo-like images. even with a magnifying lens it is hard to see any dots, the typography is more crisp as well. this STACCATO printing method is resolutionwise similar to 175 Ipi ( lines per inch ) in the old halftone printing, and equivalent to 400 dpi in digital resolution.

the paper quality is from the best, 190 gr/sqm matte. I remember criticism about the ‘toilet’-paper quality of DREAM WORLDS. the VISION pages are something else, the images seem to be three-dimensional in their quality and shiny on the matte paper.

enough of the ‘advertising! it just looks good.
below some pictures from the printing, the 15m long printing machine, the different color plates and the quality check.

tomorrow I am gonna show some of the pages and reviews
