Everyone is talking about this magazine cover. It seems to be all over the twitterverse. And for good reason, it's amazing! I will be ordering up one for my "keeper" file. It is a true feat of paper engineering, thought, creativity and mathmatics. Feast your eyes and hands on the cover of the November issue of German design magazine, NOVUM. They commissioned PAPERLUX to design and produce this cover. It is made up of 1,000 faceted, colored and registered score lines. They can be folded and bent along these scores to shape the cover into geometric fun. The cover says - "play with me". Watch the video below to see the "Making of the Cover".
Here are some details about the project.
- 48,000 print passes
- 6 different colored covers created by changing the sequence of the cmyk inks - no new plates were utilized
- 1,000 scored triangles
