Printing the 2020 ABDA Book Design Awards Catalogue

This year’s ABDA Book Design Awards catalogue is truly a thing of beauty, inside and out. Designed by the 2019 Emerging Designer of the Year Jessica Horrocks, ABDA recently visited the wonderful Ligare Book Printers in Sydney to watch as the 2020 catalogue was produced in all its holographic glory.

As a Gold Sponsor of this year’s ABDA Book Design Awards, the OPUS Group continues its long standing ties to the Australian publishing industry and proud support of the book design community. As a founding business for the OPUS Group, Ligare Book Printers has been servicing the Australian book industry for more than 40 years.

Founded in 1979, Ligare is the only book printer in Australia that can produce a section sewn hardcover book in house in as little as 2 weeks. From short-run digital printing and binding in mono and full colour, to full offset colour and mono printing in soft and hard covers, Ligare have all of your book printing requirements covered under one roof in Sydney.

Ligare produced the catalogue entirely in Sydney, from plate to print and cased all on site. For the design nerds reading, the book has a stunning 4 PMS colour case with soft touch lamination, embossing and clear holographic foil with 5(!!) colour text. All our finishes dreams come true.

Thank you Ligare! You can purchase a copy of the 2020 Book Design Awards catalogue here.
