    Graphic design magazine with a focus on restaurants and cafés and a letterpress cover
novum 04.17 »dine & design«

Italian flair in Singapore, authentic cuisine from Quebec, a Michelin-star restaurant in Florence and a stylish motorway service station – our April issue focuses on the topic of »dine & design« and we present great projects from all around the world. 

To go full circle the cover of our April looks like a menu, designed by Austrian studio Bruch–Idee&Form. The chef’s suggestion today: Otl Aicher’s legendary pictograms for starters, followed by tasty design from Italy and typographic storytelling from Germany. 

To please the eye even more, we produced the cover with letterpress. Printed by Infinitive Factory the typography is pin sharp and goes well with the smooth uncoated paper we used (Salzer Touch).

The paper
Salzer Touch White in 300 gsm by Geese Papier

The printing of the cover
Infinitive Factory from Graz printed the cover on a Heidelberger letterpress printing machine from 1961 and for each color Druckformen Obermoser from Salzburg made two 2 millimeter magnesium printing blocks.
