Fedrigoni 365 has always been an expression of love. It has been its own love letter to the power of creativity, of fine paper and of exquisite print. Uniting so many designers under one shared goal of design, positivity and collaboration has been, and continues to be, one of the best parts of this project.
The events over the last few years have highlighted the importance of these expressions of unity, of kindness and of love. They stand as a reminder to love more and to love harder. So this year, contributors to the project been asked to spread this message by using the idea of ‘love’ as the core inspiration behind their designs. As with all beautiful objects, there is an intricate and unseen craft that has been invested into each unique copy. The book contains 365 individual labours of love, printed on a beautiful mélange of red to pink hues from Fedrigoni’s vast range of fine papers.
This year is a particular joy in that it focuses the minds of so many creatives on one single theme. The results really are indicative of the individuality of each mind and of each designer as they range from the emotionally sublime to the tongue-in-cheek ridiculous – but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Previous editions of the publication have highlighted select stocks from Fedrigoni’s vast range of papers, from an entirely black book in 2018 to an edition made of ten white papers in 2019, followed by a recycled rainbow of colours in 2020, a digitally printed version in 2021 and an edition made up of four uniquely bound volumes in 2022. Profits from previous editions have been donated to charity, so far raising over £22,000.
A limited number of editions of Fedrigoni 365 LOVE can be purchased from Counter-Print. Profits from sales this year will be donated to the British Heart Foundation.
The books have been assembled at random, with varying coloured front and back cover boards glued onto each book block. This process has been purposefully left to chance, letting each edition carry its own visual signature and its own message of love, bringing to light both complementary and juxtaposing mixes of colour.
Identity were the trusted print partner for this edition and they have brought a wealth of knowledge, experience and willingness to the collaboration. This project is nothing without the keen innovation and unparalleled know-how of our printer partners.
The cover of this edition of Fedrigoni 365 has been composed in production, with variously coloured boards glued onto the front and back cover at random. The cover boards have been finished with two foils.
The inner has been printed in silver throughout (PMS 877) on a variety of red to pink hues from the vast Fedrigoni collection.
Note: cover colours vary and will will be picked at random.
