To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Azrieli Fellows Program, the Azrieli Foundation had a special evening Gala devoted to celebrating the Fellows that have been part of the program for the past ten years. For that occasion they released a special edition book that focus on some of those remarkable Fellows.
To achieve a high level, very clean and sophisticated style, I needed the overall look of the book to be enhance with something unique and exceptional. Slipcases are part of what makes a book special and at the same time it could add an extra protection to the finished product, however I didn’t want the user to handle that extra piece when manipulating the book, sliding the books out of the cases can’t be good for them. Having a case bound book with a three-panel cover that has two opposite sides folded to meet at the center was a unique way to present the book. A thin magnet was also inserted and hidden in the binder’s board to keep everything nicely close and it conceals the beauty of the book when you pick it up.
