‘The Pleasure of Painting in Watercolour’ – A Perfect Bound Book

When local watercolour artist Jack O’Hare asked us to print his book “The Pleasure of Painting in Watercolour”, we were very honoured, as he was a highly respected artist.

The book has 124 pages of delightful watercolours along with a narrative from Jack about each painting, the technique used and tips on how to learn how to do it for yourself.

The main attraction for Jack using DVF was we could produce ‘The Pleasure of Painting in Watercolour’ entirely in-house. We were able to produce “wet-proofs” of the book on the actual paper we would be printing on so Jack could assess if the colours were being replicated properly. If they needed editing he sat with one of our designers and approved the amendments in real-time.

We also produced a finished “book proof” printed and bound on the materials we would use for the production run. These are just some of the advantages of the digital printing process.

The Digital Printing process has made self-publishing small quantities of books very achievable, much like ‘The Pleasure of Painting in Watercolour’.

Please give us a call and come and have a chat about your project.
