Zest publish first book for Bentley Motors

Yesterday saw the delivery of our first piece of work for the prestigious car marque Bentley Motors, located in Crewe in Cheshire. The book was specially commissioned to mark the retirement of their Chairman & CEO, Dr.-Ing. Franz-Josef Paefgen. This short run publication is 31cm square and it was designed and produced by Zest utilising digital print technology via an Indigo Press, with the laminated dust-jackets produced on a Xeikon Press. Finally it was threadsewn and casebound by hand. According to Christine Gaskell, member of the board at Bentley Motors, they are delighted with the end result which exceeded their expectations – in fact Dr. Paefgen was overwhelmed when he was presented with his copies and said it was one of the best presents he had ever received. High praise indeed!
