Pink is the new black

Dear 4-colour process printing,

Sometime ago we wrote to express our hope that you would not be offended if instead of using a CMYK approximation of pink, we used PMS 806 pink on the cover of Scarygirl by Nathan Jurevicius - because we really needed a dramatic, fluorescent pink that we knew that you would struggle to achieve.

This is just a follow-up letter to show you how splendidly the PMS performed.

You will note that we made excellent use of your wonderful range and processes on the inside pages and the endpapers ...

... and the inside jacket: What ho - a poster!

We now have another little confession to make. It seems we are having an elegant sufficiency of pink at the moment, and it wasn't just for one book that we opted for a pink PMS.

So we are hoping you will also forgive us for going to PMS 182 for the cover of (this aptly titled) gorgeous Pink by Lili Wilkinson, because, my, hasn't it come up a treat - both inside and out.

We do hope you are as pleased with the results as we are.

Don't they look fine in all their pink glory. We (and Nathan & Lili) thank you again for your generosity of spirit and colour and trust you and the PMS spectrum can continue to live together in harmony.
