Hahnemühle FineArt inkjet albums now are available as customisable systems, with two exclusive leather covers and four Digital FineArt papers to choose from. After all, special pictures not only require the best paper, but also classy presentation. Launched at Photokina in 2012, the new album concept has been enthusiastically received by photographers. Brazilian wedding photographer Jared Windmüller appreciates the new Hahnemühle inkjet albums: “Wedding photography is business and art at the same time. Being a photographer who wants to fulfil the demanding wishes of my bridal couples, I print luxury albums. I see a clear trend to these precious portfolios by Hahnemühle.”
“For the international acquisition for my expositions, I present my portfolio in the new Hahnemühle FineArt inkjet leather album”, says German photographer Jörg Karrenbauer. “The album is the ideal tool for presenting my work professionally to gallery owners, collectors or curators.”
The show-stopper of the new album concept: different leather covers and content papers can be freely combined. So, every photographer has got the opportunity to give their album in the format A4, A3 or 12×12 inch (about 30 x 30 cm) a very personal touch.
The album cover is available in classic black leather or a new padded version with decorative red stitching. All the cover sets include book-binder screws in two different lengths, offering enough space for 20 or 40 printable pages plus the respective number of interleaf sheets. Also included are two black protection papers, which serve as front and back cover sheets.
For the printing of the album pages, you can now choose between four different paper qualities from the popular Photo Rag® range. In the industry, these papers are regarded as the benchmark when it comes to archival papers with high longevity. Photo Rag® Book & Album, 220 gsm and Photo Rag® Duo, 276 gsm are available for the two-side printing, while you can choose between Photo Rag® Pearl, 320 gsm (nacre-gloss surface) and Photo Rag® Satin, 310 gsm (satin-gloss surface) if you print on one side only. All the pages are pre-scored and punched to make turning the pages easy.
