(11/4/2012)

Afterhours Books, publishers of the luxurious Walter Spies Collectors Suite published to commemorate the legendary German expatriate painter, photographer, choreographer and anthropologist who lived in Ubud, Bali in the 1930, has won the “Benny Award” in the Best Category for Art Books at the 2012 Premier Print Awards—the world's most prestigious, oldest and largest worldwide graphic arts competition.

Now in its 63rd year, the annual contest recognizes published creations and productions of superior print communications. First-place winners in each category of the competition receive the Benny Award, named after Benjamin Franklin. This year, more than 2,800 entries were received from printing and graphic arts firms from around the world.

The Walter Spies Collectors Suite
—the first of its kind art book in Indonesia—was conceptualized and designed in Jakarta, Indonesia, and printed by Artron Enterprise in Shenzhen, China to commemorate the iconic artist who made Bali his home and various celebrities of the 1930s and helped sparked the creative economy of Bali before his premature death in 1942.

The limited edition showcases the best in design, printing and packaging.

The “Benny Award” is the first time an Indonesian book has been so honored.

This special project combined sharp design with challenging finishing and spectacular 6-color printing—implementing fine stochastic screening and full-color thermal transfer process on its silk and leather bookcovering material—with gold foilstamping as well as glossy overprint spot varnishing on Garda Pat 13 Klassika 216gsm paper to protect the artwork plates. Meticulous attention was demanded throughout, and numerous full-bleed pages with cross-gutter elements required the utmost pressmanship and finishing acumen to match the colors and nuance. Careful book stitching and binding was required to finish off this gigantic, 30-kg set. And finally the exclusively designed wooden box was laser engraved and specially treated to pass the FSC and fumigation certifications.

Only 150 sets of the book were produced of the luxurious Walter Spies Collectors Suite making the book a unique piece of art in its own right.
