After posting about my Colourful Language books that FE Burman printed on Old Mill Stucco a couple of days ago, the lovely people at Fedrigoni sent me their beautiful, die-cut The Art of Colour book for their Sirio range of uncoated coloured paper designed by SEA. The design of the book is based around the phenomenon of simultaneous contrast and shows the range of colours from Paglierino, a warm, dark cream to Lampone, a bright red, to Nero, a deep black. Incidentally most of the names for the colours of the paper are Italian, reflecting the company’s home in Verona. Paglierino is named after the Italian cheese, Lampone means raspberry in English, while Nero translates as black or dark. There is also a deep green called Foglia, meaning leaf and Pietra, a mid grey after the Italian for stone. For full details of the range check out the Fedrigoni Website.
