Color Libray
Research into Color Reproduction and Printing
Design: Maximage
Printing: ECAL / Benjamin Plantier

Edited by Maximage, the publication documents the different chromatic and technical possibilities offered by “Color Library” through the use of different kinds of papers (coated and uncoated), and offers a wide variety of color combinations, from basic colors through metallic, neon, and pastel. It includes photographs by Zurich-based photographer Shirana Shahbazi printed in spot color, essays by Emily King and Manon Bruet describing the context of the project and its ambitions, as well as an essay by Franz Sigg on the evolution and standardization of print. An appendix allows an in-depth understanding of the “Color Library” color combinations.
