Starch Marks

For any potato lover, there's a wonderful surprise waiting for  you at this year's paper show. French paper manufacturer Arjowiggens has released an exciting 7-color spread as part of their Curious Collection.

What makes it so special? The Curious Matter Chippers are all coated using a by-product of the food industry—spherical particles of raw potato starch.

The result is a very surprising tactile experience. And they are all specced for various offset, digital, letterpress and lithographic printing. 

Each color is named after a rare variety of spud. I haven't given the swatches a taste-testing yet... but it's only a matter of time!
