David Bromley

A Picture Book First & Foremost

The brief

3 Deep were engaged by David Bromley to position, conceptualise, art direct, design and produce a limited edition monograph of the artist's work.

The solution

More than two years in the making, we crafted every aspect of the publication's character and facilitated the production of the publication in China using our vast network of production contacts. Our attention to detail and intimate understanding of the printing and finishing processes ensured that the publication was immaculately presented in a standard edition (3 volumes, slip case and mailer) through to a hand made limited edition complete with boys leather satchel and supporting hand made leather school book covers.

The results

– The publication sold out in all major regions.

What they said

"Oh. My. God. AMAZING. These books are stunning – they span the varied facets of Bromley’s career, and are so rich with incredible imagery of his paintings, sculptures and behind-the-scenes" – The Design Files
