I need to create a luxury book for art prints that will stand out. The product is a personalised service and the the result is delivered in a book. It is luxury, private, expensive service for a particular TA. The book must stand out, but at the same time be simple, minimalistic, chic. I am looking to converse with someone who has experience in creating luxury physical products, possibly art/archival prints, art books, publishing, working with binders/knows materials and techniques available on the market.
You should start by looking at networks like Behance and scouting designers with portfolios that match your product expectations. Great editorial projects are made by designers who are able to translate your ideas and to visually attractive designs.
Having published a couple of books an a luxury coffee table book that costs around $200, there are a couple of publishing options you can do. Are you interested in having a thicker page or a magazine-type of page?
There are now options for publishing in layflat. If you need more help in planning your book and even coordinating the publishing and distribution, give me a call here at Clarity.fm
