Despite the growing importance of environmental issues, many graphic designers and printers remain unaware of the huge potential of paper.
This is the first book about paper to address the specific needs of the design and print industries, including advice on die-cutting, embossing, pop-up and sculptural effects, and a wealth of special printing techniques. Designed by the author's own award-winning company, Williams & Phoa, the book itself demonstrates a variety of these effects, with spot-varnished and die-cut pages and a unique paper cover.
Outstanding examples of international design illustrate the traditional craft skills of the graphic designer alongside the latest products of new technology. Paperwork received the prestigious Design and Art Directors' Association (D&AD) silver award in 1994 for the most outstanding complete book.
The storm led me to Padthaway. I could never resist the allure of dark swirling clouds, windswept leaves sweeping down cobbled lanes or a view of the sea stirring up its defiant nature. The sea possessed a power all of its own and this part of Cornwall, an isolated stretch of rocky cliff tops and unexplored beaches both enchanted and terrified me. It is not a lie to say I felt drawn out that day, led to a certain destiny...
So begins this new mystery series. Young Daphne du Maurier, headstrong, adventurous, and standing at the cusp of greatness. Walking on the cliffs in Cornwall, she stumbles upon the drowned body of a beautiful woman, dressed only in a nightgown, her hair strewn along the rocks, her eyes gazing up to the heavens. Daphne soon learns that the mysterious woman was engaged to marry Lord Hartley of Padthaway, an Elizabethan mansion full of intriguing secrets. As the daughter of the famous Sir Gerald du Maurier, Daphne is welcomed into the Hartley home, but when the drowning turns out to be murder, Daphne determines to get to the bottom of the mysteries of Padthaway—in part to find fresh inspiration for her writing, and in part because she cannot resist the allure of grand houses and long buried secrets. 'Murder on the Cliffs is an enthralling mystery that gives fictional life to the inspiration behind Daphne du Maurier's classic 'Rebecca'.
