On the year of our 50th anniversary, Hobs Repro are proud to be launching the first edition of Spellbound: A Grimoire of Magical Digital Print, a book for designers. 

Not only has the death of print been greatly exaggerated, but generation Z are increasingly returning to print (some even posting carefully curated ‘shelfies’ on their Instagram). As digital fatigue and attitudes to print change, so too has the underlying technology. Most designer’s understanding of print, including our own up until recently, is based on education created in the 1990s at the turn of the millennium.

 
Spellbound explores the art of what’s possible, the theory and practice in print, whilst delving into sustainability and the latest trends in the industry; with expert commentary from a number of sources. It will be an invaluable reference document for the best designers in the business in 2019 and beyond.
