Enviro black card (square) with natural hardboard covers and black WIRO spine. Contains 60 sides of 270gsm 100% recycled black card.
We have recently overhauled this book to make it more stable and resistant to atmospheric conditions. Casebound books are less tolerant of humidity than wiro as their covers are bound-in on the spine allowing no room for movement - recycled material tends to be more prone to environmental conditions. As such the NEW Enviro casebound book now proudly comes with 'hardboard' covers - which apart from being produced from recycled material are extremely hardwearing, resistant to moisture and look great!
ALL of our ENVIRO books are produced using locally sourced quality recycled material to considerably reduce our carbon footprint adding to the credentials of our ENVIRO products. We like to think that we take sustainability and renewable issues seriously and endeavour, where possible, to act in a positive manner to the environment.
This book is bound with a black WIRO spine. WIRO binding provides extra expandability in the spine to attach added material (cuttings/swatches etc) to internal pages. It allows for the book to be completely folded round on itself taking up minimum desktop footprint. Pages can be easily pulled out should you need to. Small wiro loops hold the book better together but offer limited expandability whilst larger wiro loops provide better expandability but can make the book feel very floppy. We use a 3/4" WIRO which we believe is the best size for this number of pages to provide a happy compromise between structure and practical usage. Please remember however that a WIRO bind is less secure than a casebound book as the WIRO is pliable and will distort / break down without care. We recommend that users get in to the habit of manually closing the wire loops on a regular basis particularly if their books have a good number of pages with added material. Too much insertion will however render the binding useless as its tolerance will be exceeded.
ALL Artway branded paper is 100% acid free having gone through an oxygenated process to whiten and clean the paper rather than having bleach (and other harmful acidic agents) added to produce this effect. Modern paper making methods and standards in the Western world have, over the course of the last 30 years or so, advanced to the point that almost all newly generated recycled paper is now derived from acid free 'clean’ pulp with the resultant paper being acid free in content.
Enviro covers are a recycled product and as such are subject to surface variation on colour and texture.
