Print You Can Play With

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Unlike our own cover, which we suggest you promptly encase in a plastic sleeve and store in a lockbox for eternity, the latest cover from German design magazine Novum encourages you to crumple.

Novum teamed with design firm Paperlux to produce its hi-tech, flexible November cover. The triangular tessellation was inspired by the geodesic domes pioneered by Richard Buckminster Fuller, and the final product ended up looking a lot like one of Andy Gilmore's technicolor prints. The video to the left provides a behind-the-scenes look at the production process, from concept to finished product.

Though likely prohibitively expensive to produce, Novum's investment has seen instant returns in the form of the ol' Internet bump. Hooray for innovative print work!
