Bob Dylan for Halcyon Gallery

Halcyon Gallery presented a brand new Bob Dylan collection – Mondo Scripto – featuring the artist and songwriter’s most renowned lyrics, each handwritten by him in pen on paper and accompanied by an original pencil drawing.

Our cardboard engineers worked collaboratively with the Halcyon Gallery team to develop a collector’s piece which would house two portfolios, a book, lyric sheet, original artwork and certificate of authentication. Many iterations were developed over a six-month period to come to the final version which the customer was delighted with (and of which helped secure Pureprint as Luxury Packaging Printer of the Year 2019 at the PrintWeek Awards).

The box was developed and created by first using 3D drawings and then white mocks encompassing the main contents of the packaging, with the Halcyon Gallery team being consulted at every point to make this the embellishment required to present such a collector’s item. Nuba leather wrapped the case which was a challenge due to the scale of the end product (1600mmx1200mm) and Suedel for the inside. However, due to our expertise in packaging and print our experts revelled in the challenge this faced coming up with a solution for the customer.

The final collation of the job was undertaken in our secure finishing facilities including 100% quality control due to the cost of the leather and high value nature of the contents; original artwork and certificate of authentication.
