This original Cambridge Imprint design was created in 2014 for Persephone Books, celebrated independent publisher of undeservedly forgotten women’s writing of the twentieth century. Persephone books are elegant in their uniform covers of gentle grey, each hiding a different patterned end paper within. Our Persephone design has an appropriately early twentieth century Bloomsbury feel about it.
Cambridge Imprint paper is printed in England on FSC paper of archiving quality, using vegetable oil-based inks that are friendly to the environment. Each sheet is printed in one or two hand-mixed inks on uncoated 90 gsm paper to create a high quality matte paper with a hand-printed feel to it. A sheet of paper measures 50 cm x 70 cm.
