It’s not very often that our 6th generation gets married and we knew the paper portion of the festivities had to be just right, so we called in favors to some great friends. For concept and design we reached out to Bob Ewing of Inch x Inch and Instagram fame. Once Bob had worked his magic we handed the project off to the talented hands at Mama’s Sauce to bring it all to life. We hope you enjoy the final product as much as we do.

French Paper Company and CSA Design were honored to collaborate with Artist/Illustrator/Designer David Plunkert on a small artist book promotion David Plunkert Posters On French Paper.
This collection of 36 posters is selected from a 15-year labor of love by David Plunkert for Theatre Project, a pioneering experimental Baltimore theater company. Mr. Plunkert’s expressive imagery for the theater always hits its mark, whether promoting classical Greek dramas or contemporary dance exhibitions. The posters themselves are timeless examples of one artist’s mastery of illustration, type design, and printing. Each year he creates at least four posters for the series and adopts stylistic direction different from the previous years. This book includes nine series of four posters paired with papers and techniques that best reflect Plunkert’s diversity.
David Plunkert Posters On French Paper is printed by Franklin Press on six different French Paper stocks: Kraft-Tone Manilla Yellow and Ledger Green, Speckletone Kraft, Pop-Tone Whip Cream and Tangy Orange, and Dur-O-Tone Newsprint White. The book also incorporates the unusual collation of French folds, perforations, and an exposed perfect bound glue-edge stitched inside a wrap-around cover. The result is a small impactful paper art object with pages that can also be removed and shared as postcards or decorations.
