"Shades of Green" is a collection of articles originally written for the South Wales Echo by local gardening expert Clive Edwards. Clive had the idea of combining them all into one volume and producing a very limited edition which he would give to his closest friends and family. Clive contacted me, through Abbey Bookbinding, and commissioned me to design and produce the book. Eight editions were produced in perfect bound form and two were case bound.
Both versions were A5 and digitally printed in full colour throughout on 150gsm silk. The perfect bound copies had a gloss laminated 350gsm silk cover while the case bound versions were bound using green cloth in keeping with the theme. The typefaces used were Sabon Roman, Italic and Bold for the text and DIN Light and Black for display.
Sadly, after a very short, sudden illness Clive passed away before he could take the next step and publish a larger quantity. However, his sister, Ann, and brother, Roy, are taking the project on as a lasting memorial.
