Champion Papers determined to reach out to that elusive market through its Imagination Series, an annual print publication targeting the design community and showcasing the varied creative uses of paper in stunning ways. Each Imagination book has been distinct with beautifully executed themes through the use of photography and illustrations, richly printed on a diverse range of paper grades using a number of different printing and finishing techniques, such as fold outs, die cuts and specialty bindings. Enlightening and educational text exploring the theme often accompanies the images. For example, the theme of Imagination 25 is “Fun and Games,” where the text investigates the toys and recreational pastimes of numerous cultures and the value placed on play by ancient and contemporary societies as a means to learn and recreate.
