print & design by badly made books

- - -

below are some the projects that we are most proud of.

Prim's Bookshop & Sherry Bar, kinsale

- - -

Letterpress printed in white oil-baes ink on Wool Black recycled card this menu design allows the bar to replace the menu within the cover easily.

We combined Simon Prim's handwriting, for the titles, with a clear font for the drinks info.

The menu functions using our book-stick concept meaning that the structure is designed for longterm use whilst the pages can be changed if updates are made to the menu or if it becomes too worn from use.

Ichigo Ichie, Cork

- - -

Takehi Michizaki's Michelin starred Ichigo Ichie is revered as one of the best restuarants in Ireland.

Our menu and stationery package includes menus in both english and japanese (both printing using inks from rice-oil, a byproduct of processing rice grains) as well as bill folders, drinks menus & more.

Each item is printed on recycled paper and features the drawings and writing of chef Takashi.
