Images 1...

I have had to find images to go along side all of my explanations of the printing processes, the finishing techniques, the interviews and to illustrate my timeline. The books that I have been using have helped me to think about where I can find the right imagery, and I will probably use some of the images from the books. I do want to find good examples for each section, so I have been googling myself silly to find the best way of showing these:

These are all of the images that I have used within the finishing techniques book. Most of these images were quite easy to find, though some proved difficult:

10. Embossed brochure

The majority of these images have been found as examples from printers websites. I'm really pleased that I have managed to find such good examples for each technique and been able to show some of the dies that are used within the processes.
