When Arjowiggins created an ultra-calendared paper with a haptic that feels undeniably like human skin, they sought to design a limited-edition lookbook that highlights the power of one of our most innate senses—touch—especially in relation to way skin reveals/encloses and gives warmth/releases energy. I photographed objects and people around the theme of skin and then hand-stitched books of 12 french-folded pages displaying the entire range of colors from the Curious Collection: SKIN paper line. To achieve rich, opaque colors, the full-color images and metallics were offset printed on top of floods of white ink.
