The Gmund Compendium

A book of samples becomes a cultic reference volume

Countless creative ideas can be transformed into diverse realities on paper from Gmund. For over 25 years, Gmund Paper has impressively demonstrated this with its cultic DIN A5-format sample books. Now this collector’s item has morphed into something new: yesterday’s sample book has become today’s Compendium. 

The Gmund Compendium serves our customers as a reference volume about each new collection. It offers a unique overview of materials and processing possibilities. Each Compendium portrays a paper collection with an instantly recognizable character that’s intuitively illustrated on the volume’s cover. 

The new, innovative and trailblazing Gmund Compendiums put the papers and the printing techniques even more dynamically into the limelight. Each Compendium uses the entire palette of different techniques to provide the greatest possible comparability. 

True to the adage which states that “less is more,” the Compendiums rely on a minimalistic design to emphasize the different potential uses for the papers. The unique paper patterns embody a representative connective thread that runs through diverse and high-quality printed materials on the finest papers.

The Gmund Collector is available to provide an optimal overview. This elegant wooden box can accommodate 18 Compendiums. 

Also available as a set with the Collector and the first 15 Compendiums of the following collections: Gmund 925, Gmund Action, Gmund Cotton, Gmund Colors Matt, Gmund Colors Felt, Gmund Colors Transparent, Gmund Colors Metallic, Gmund Bier Paper, Gmund for Food, Gmund Heidi, Gmund Kashmir, Gmund Label, Gmund Urban, Gmund Gold and Gmund No Color No Bleach. Other collections are in preparation. The new Gmund Compendium has a minimalistic and standardized design. A representative connective thread for printing on the finest papers. Here, for example, Gmund Colors Metallic.
