Project Love: Design To Touch Book

In continued celebration of the art of engraving, Neenah Paper is featuring the book Design to Touch, and many of its beautifully engraved pages on The Beauty of Engraving site.

Design to Touch is a beautifully produced, comprehensive visual and technical guide to engraved printing, written for students of graphic arts as well as curious professionals. The book, co-authored by Rose Gonnella was a labor of love; a way to introduce and explore creative, modern uses of this centuries-old craft. In addition to information on the process of engraving and helpful notes on industry standards and best practices, Design to Touch features thirty beautifully engraved pages from artwork contributed by internationally renowned designers including Stefan Sagmeister, Jessica Hische, Steff Geissbuhler, Steve Sandstrom, Matteo Bologna and Louise Fili.

Neenah is highlighting Design to Touch as Edition 7 on, and featuring many of the pages from the book in the site’s gallery. “We hope to raise awareness for this book and for the time-honored process of engraving, and to touch a new generation of designers and show them that engraving can enhance any type of work,” said Auburne Gahlman, Associate Brand Manager, Neenah Paper.
