The art of the physical book remains. Their physical forms and visual aspect broadcast messages before we even approach or open them. Some indulge in the variety and forms of typography with the dancing line of the authors brush; others delight in pigment on carefully chosen papers. Books have functions unconnected with the texts or images they bear. The physical shapes of such works prepare us for discovery, and with this you have the tactile sense of progress which aids the reader, providing more fixity and solidity to their sense of unfolding the story of the artist who held the pen.
Our covers are vibrant, high quality and durable.
We understand the memories, significance and experiences that books contain, and so we create high-end products to match the experience of that which you read. The first questions we ask ourselves in the design process are; is this a book we'd like to carry in our hands when travelling? and; will it occupy bedside tables worldwide?
We use FSC certified, lead-free, acid-free, buffered 118 gsm paper, make from wood-pulp. Our paper meets the ISO 9706 standard for permanent paper. As such, every book you purchase from Steve Whyte Publishing will last several hundred years when stored in an optimal environment.
