Designed for Cargill, Manchester as part of their year long centenary celebrations. Cargill produce sweeteners and starches for confectionery, brewing, dairy and baking sectors.
Rich in archival images, it is both a company history and a social document of the people and the development of the site. In parallel, it is a fascinating look at the way photography has portrayed a single company, from lush plate glass black and white prints, to early large format colour including wonderful ‘Kodachromes’, through to current digital images. Full of interesting facts and well researched historical text written by Len Grant, it is a beautifully produced softback with an unusual concertina dustjacket that unfolds into a 2 sided poster of archival images.
A limited edition version has a special half height slipcase.
Alongside the book, Axis has been commissioned to design 2 8ft x 4ft panels in the same graphic style as the dustjacket, to be hung in the staff entrance hall.
That looks good - although it will always be sad thinking of Scarponi https://t.co/DUtjNUGSTn
