Back in 1990, our original graphic designer (and the creative force behind our logo) Paul Dean, created a wonderful little booklet called Paper Shrine.

We published it as a promo item that we could gift to our favorite clients. The booklet contains endearing images pulled from pop culture, including menu graphics, logos, fortune cookie fortunes and Cracker Jack prizes presented over day-glo op-art backgrounds. The 48-page saddle-stitched booklet is an early example of green printing, as it was produced using offset printing on recycled paper. It measures 4×5 and was produced on our single color Heidelberg GTO press.

We were thrilled to hear from Paul that the Los Angeles Museum of Art has accepted Paper Shrine into their permanent collection! It is a great honor to have our work recognized and archived in this way. Congratulations Paul, and thank you for letting us be a part of your success!

Paul Dean is a professor of Design and is currently teaching at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. He continues to create remarkable projects from his home studio there. You can see a copy of Paper Shrine displayed in our reception area at Barefoot Press, along with other examples of Paul’s work.
