Today I watched an inspirational video detailing the printing process used on the cover of Craig Oldhams newest book 'In Loving Memory of Work'.

The book is a visual record of the miners strikes that took place in England during the 1980's, documenting the events with images and artifacts collected by Oldham and his family, some of whom were miners involved in the strikes.

The aspect of the publication I found most inspirational is the innovative wrap-around cover, which Oldham chose to print using coal dust taken from the site of Barnsley Mill in South Yorkshire. 

The video embedded below documents the print process and the stunning effect the printed coal dust creates.
