A photographic essay on skin, each photograph printed on a different substrate with differing inks - all described in photographic index at rear.

"Bryan Edmondson is a bit of a paper buff, so when it came to designing something that would show off the capabilities of German mill Scheufelen's new stock Phoenix, distributed by GF Smith, he turned to Rankin for the photos and Keith Arnold at Moore for the printing of an extraordinary catalogue. 'I pretty much had a clear idea, at the outset, of what I wanted to do, as I'd used the paper in the past and knew the surface was unique, which was part of the idea of Surface Seduction,' recalls Edmondson. Thus, the concept was given to Rankin as, 'the idea of beauty and details of the body, such as the so-called skin beauty of the lips to the not-so-beautiful stubble in an armpit. The idea was liked straight away, as skin tones are a great test of print on a good paper'. The book uses a combination of random dot and stochastic screens, along with different varnishes throughout, including matt seal, matt varnish, gloss varnish and ultraviolet varnish. Taken together - and with a wealth of detail on the different finishes, techniques and coatings in the inside back cover - the whole acts as an astonishingly sumptuous book in its own right, but also as a mine of information for designers."
