Birmingham-based Edwin Ellis Creative Media has produced a hard-back coffee table-style book for a nationwide arts and education organisation.
The 290-page glossy book, called ‘experience COLOUR’, looks at how light and colour has influenced scientific and artistic thinking over the centuries.
The book was produced for the Ruskin Mill Land Trust, the sister organisation to the Ruskin Mill Trust, an Independent Specialist Provider offering a range of course subjects to learners with complex needs.
In addition to online availability, the book will be sold at the experience COLOUR exhibition, at the Glasshouse Arts Centre in Stourbridge (until October 14). The exhibition invites visitors of all ages and abilities to explore the fascinating science and art of colour through large-scale installations, displays and experiments.
Following on from a successful European tour, Glasshouse Arts Centre is the first UK venue to show the exhibition.
Edwin Ellis Creative Media was launched by former Birmingham Post editor Stacey Barnfield and its PR clients include The Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run, the Vélo South cycle event, Colmore BID, Solihull BID, Lightbox Digital and Associated Architects.
The agency also publishes a quarterly magazine for Retail BID and manages content for Colmore Life magazine.
‘experience COLOUR’ is Edwin Ellis’s largest single publishing commission since the agency was founded in the summer of 2015.
Edwin Ellis director, Stacey Barnfield, said: “experience COLOUR was a fascinating project to work on and we’re thrilled with the result.
“Producing a book that features the work of Turner and Rothko and pages of colourful scientific experiments required a simple, consistent design theme and typographic style that ensures the stunning works of art become the focal point.
“We hope this is the first of many books, catalogues or brochures we publish for arts and education organisations across the UK.”
Dr Troy Vine, Editor of experience COLOUR, said: “As editor of this book containing articles by more than 20 authors it has been a tremendous help to have the solid support and professionalism of Stacey.
“On top of that, the layout is exquisite and the quality of the printing and binding greatly exceeded my expectation. Everyone who has bought a copy has commented on its quality and great first impression.”
