The Black Ice Quarterly Edition is made by stamping Sappi’s premium McCoy 100# cover stock with a silvery-black metallic foil, covering the whole book, everything but the spine (video). That portion features a stripe of vibrant orange ink with a soft-touch varnish. The cover text is embossed, giving the whole book a retro-futuristic machine feel. And this is our first pocket memo book without staples! The books are PUR-bound, using an advanced polyurethane adhesive that’s both stronger and more flexible than regular perfect binding. Inside, you’ll find “Bright White” Finch Fine Smooth 70# text paper.These books look simply amazing.
