Custom-built Slipcases for Artist’s Books

Excerpt from MASS MoCA about, Are You Really My Friend?… “In 2011, Maine-based photographer Tanja Alexia Hollander set out to differentiate the actual from the virtual by photographing all 626 of her Facebook friends. Since then, she has traveled across the globe, setting up in-person meetings in her friends’ homes to discover the ways in which friendship is defined, and how permission is granted into one’s private — yet also very public — online life. Through this project, the artist has been able to take the virtual out of friendship.”

Portfolio Presentation / Maine / BookBindery

If you’re in the market for a custom built Print Portfolio Mullenberg Design’s has a custom Presentation Solution for you. We offer 2 distinct styles of Portfolio books. The Full-Case style Portfolio and the 3-Piece style Portfolio. Each of these styles is built with a screw post binding making it easy for you to update and edit your print portfolio.

So… which style is best for you?

Let’s review the differences between the 2 styles to help you make this important decision.

The Mullenberg Designs Full-Case Portfolio

The Full Case Portfolio is also called the 1-Piece Portfolio because the front and back cover and the spine are built as one piece with an interior spine piece insert. This portfolio has the look of a traditional bound book.

Mullenberg Designs Full Case Style Portfolio built for Tarliza Cameiro Schall

You can add a splash of color and personalize your Full Case Portfolio with a 2-Fabric Cover. This customization allows you to control how much of the fabric will wrap around the spine and onto the Portfolio covers. The portfolio pictured below has a 2-Fabric Cover wrap of 3 inches. You can  have as little as an 1/8 of an inch of fabric wrapped onto the front and back covers for just a hint of color.

Mullenberg Designs 2 Fabric Cover Full Case Style Portfolio

The Mullenberg Designs 3-Piece Portfolio

Like the name suggests the 3-Piece Portfolio is built in three separate pieces. The front cover, back cover and the spine. This style works great if would like to add different color spine to your portfolio design. You can also order multiple spines and change out to the spine color for a quick portfolio update! This is also a nice option if you plan on updating your logo in the near future, as you can opt to just build out a new cover.

You can add the 2-Fabric Cover customization to the 3-Piece style as well!

Philip F Clark Poet Clamshell Presentation Box built by Mullenberg DesignsPhilip F. Clark / NYC / Poet

An Orphan of Fire

I am an orphan of fire and

a seer eye; a rank coil

of panic rummaging

in a satchel of curses

and curiosity.

I break your flesh

and make music

on the harp of your bones.

To love me back requires

an avid mouth.

Longing is the air I eat.

-Philip F. Clark
