Any project will be successful if you put your heart and soul into it. The result of this creative unity was the book "And from our window ...". It was born thanks to a photo project that Digital Art launched this spring, during a difficult period of self-isolation for all of us. Initially, the idea of the project was to support all those who had a hard time during this period, with the aim of uniting society and a balanced attitude towards themselves, friends and relatives. We called on our participants to tell all of us how their city, village or street has changed during this difficult period, into which the whole world and our country entered. But as our photo project developed, receiving more and more letters covering the geography of almost all regions of Russia from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad and from other countries too, we gradually realized that not only our initial concept was changing with it, we ourselves were changing too! This book is the result of a creative atmosphere and unity of people, a symbol of spirituality and national culture. We are grateful to everyone who contributed a bit of themselves to this project, and we are grateful to them for that!
To publish the book, we tried and tested to print on different materials. The main problem was that most of the photos were taken with the phone. The quality of the material was very different, and not always the project participants had the opportunity to send photos in their best form. At the same time, the frame or plot itself was so eloquent and amazing that I did not want to give it up at all. It was obvious that we needed such paper and printing to minimize the disadvantages of photographs as much as possible. It was very important to achieve equivalence in quality and visual perception of all the material, to make it "homogeneous". And that is why the paper Pergraphica was chosen: it “smoothed” all the nuances. The book is in hardcover. The cover is a window on which the signs of the coronavirus are printed with 3d varnish. The cover uses the technology of selective 3d foiling and varnish, soft touch lamination. Book volume 252 pages.
Our Book "And from our window ..." has received numerous rave reviews from public and cultural figures of Russia, artists and musicians, project participants and partners. They noted that the idea of this project is social in nature. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, our project was able to bring people together and brought positiveness during this period for many people.
