Lecta’s New Book “Divergence” illustrates the allure of contrast

Divergence, the latest edition of the Lecta (Barcelona, Spain) yearly publishing project, once again showcases the end results that can be achieved by printing on the paper manufacturers’ extensive range of publishing papers. This year’s book features an original concept that explores the beauty of opposites through imagery.

The publication juxtaposes evocative colour and black-and-white photos that show how contrast enables us to distinguish one element from another. The notion of differentiation is also reflected in the selection of the two different two-sided coated papers on which the book was printed: GardaPremium Natural (a silk paper with a smooth surface and a natural shade), and GardaPat 13 Bianka (a matte paper with a pure white shade, high bulk and a velvet surface).

The two extremes of surface, colour and volume each add high value and differentiation to the final printed result in several different ways. To request a copy of the book, and for more information on Lecta’s range of coated and uncoated papers, please visit www.lecta.com.
