The Metropolitan Companies Portfolio
The Metropolitan Portfolio project, designed by Eric Baker in collaboration with CJPW, called for a heavy-weight cover stock for each of the three books. We chose Iggesund Paperboard’s sheet, Invercote because of its excellent surface and unique “grainless” qualities. To maintain cross-over alignment on page spreads the binding was completed using four-page signatures and die scoring. The three stitched booklets were fitted into a custom three-panel capacity pocket folder.
