Colour & Books : Sebastiaan Hanekroot

Sebastiaan Hanekroot is an expert in the reproduction of photography and art into books. A long career immersed in the world of book printing has given Sebastiaan great knowledge of the process, and how it can be optimised for great results.

Following a workshop that I was fortunate enough to take part in, Sebastian ran the group through some golden rules that ensure a captivating print. We discussed the photographic print as a sometimes neglected final form that is deserving of more attention. Sebastiaan's passion for achieving compelling prints was contagios and promted the class to reconsider the way we prepare photographs to print.

After a concise and clear talk we were invited to take on Sebastiaan's advice, appliying some of his steps to our photographs and sending them to print.
