The Collection, by G.F. Smith and Made Thought


G.F. Smith, in collaboration with Made Thought, has curated The Collection – a publication of different papers collated over the last 130 years, ranging in colours, textures and finishes. It is intended for use by designers as a resource, and includes thumb tabs and page number indexing to aid searching.

“The primary concern was to create an ‘every day’ working tool for the creative,” says Ben Parker, director at Made Thought. “Appreciating that there are a multitiude of routes to select and specify a single paper, we look to the most trusted and long-standing tools for guidance – dictionaries and encyclopedias.”
