Fine-art Books

If you want to produce the ultimate photographic art book or a limited edition worthy of the international collector's network you can't go past inkjet printing onto 100% Cotton Rag pages. The pages are finished with archival Hahnemühle spray then lovingly bound by hand, making these books art objects in their own right.


by Kraig Carlström

This book was a labour of love created by photographer and yachtsman, Kraig Carlström to document the meticulous reconstruction of the 1924 Norwegian yacht VARG.  The story is mammoth and so is the book. Measuring 42 x 42cm, Majestic books are the largest format available in the Momento Pro range.

Kraig chose to complement the craftsmanship involved in the vessel’s rebuild with inkjet printed Cotton Rag pages, hand stitching and hand binding.  An edition of 10 has been created with one copy purchased by the National Library of Australia.

by Robert van Koesveld

This is an intimate, intricately researched observation of Geiko and Maiko culture in Kyoto. The stunning photography is complemented by a professional layout including Japanese patterns, sophisticated typography and a dust jacket that takes full advantage of all the panels to promote the book and author.

A digital offset print was produced as a proof for attracting a trade publisher, and an inkjet version was produced for Robert’s self-published limited edition - an artwork in its own right.

Let's Get Weird Together

by Angie Connell

A fine-art book doesn't have to be the result of inkjet printing and Cotton Rag, there's plenty of creative ways to create an art book feel with our more economical paper and material options.

Melbourne based fine-art photographer, Angie Connell, chose  section sewn Satin 170 paper with a custom embossed Azure linen cover for her self published portfolio.  The inclusion of a Permission Slip Promo Card was a creative touch.

Our hot tip for creating a book with a fine-art feel without the expense is Indigo digital printing onto Eggshell 148  paper - the affordable artistic alternative.
