We’re not short on submissions of projects examining whether print is obsolete (SPOILER ALERT! It isn’t), so the work has to be pretty special for us to take notice. That of German designer Isabel Seiffert really stood out, and her book and design for Not the End of Print is considered, accomplished and fully embraces the physical media it endorses. Not only did Isabel design the book, she also carried out the research and penned the text. The gorgeously tactile foils and hand-stamping and well-crafted layout show her dedication to the print cause, and nod to the more sensory appeal of pages over browser windows. While not an original idea by any means, Isabel’s craft and eye make this a piece that stands out and begs to be pored over, analogue style.
