The Ligature on Ligatures

Project Information

The Ligature is a full-service commercial printer, dedicated to maximizing the impact of brands through the art of printing and engraving. Their craft is a rare commodity in today’s digital world and The Ligature on Ligatures endeavors to demonstrate their many capabilities in a clear and artful way and asked Kuhlmann Leavitt to create a printed piece to help them do so. French folded pages are adorned with embossing, engraving, foil stamping, thermography and lithography. The text, written by the type legend Doyald Young, offers a primer on ligatures that educates the reader and leaves them smarter than when they first picked up this little gem of a book.
