Uses

The superior colour reproduction and lightweight nature of our Booklets make them perfect for self publishing, exhibition catalogues, giveaway portfolios and mailable promotions.

The all female Australian photography collective, Lumina, created a series of nine booklets to promote their work and distribute their imagery to agencies, picture editors, and their fans.

Eight booklets feature the work of each individual artist with a biography and curated selection of images, and the ninth showcases a collection of the groups work, their philosophy and achievements.

The Lumina ladies are: Morganna Magee, Anna Maria Antoinette D'dario, Aletheia Casey, Sarah Rhodes, Lyndal Irons, Jessie Moylan, Chloe Bartram and Donna Bailey.
