DESIGNING THE SLIPCASE

Book slipcase.jpg

The actual book production is really interesting. The first edition book will have a special slipcase to protect it. (See the fancy mock up in red, top right?) A San Francisco based letterpress shop is die cutting and scoring the slipcase. Tell us, would you deboss or foil stamp the title on the slipcase?
