A quintessentially British take on an American original, the manual is published twice a year – March and September – as a seasonal guide to the finer things in life: fashion, grooming, watches, cars, interiors, food, drink, travel. The first issue – Spring/Summer 2013 – has been on sale in the UK from March 2013.

The cover of the spring/summer issue was finished by Celloglas at their Reading site. The cover was finished with a clear foil over text with a special colour. This allowed the production team to choose a spot colour through print whilst creating an effect that looks like a special coloured foil.

Steve Middleton, Sales Director at Celloglas, commented; “Where design teams would like to use uncoated stock but still achieve a glossy effect on select areas, clear foil is a useful alternative to spot UV, which would ultimately seep into the stock due to the nature of the board”.

Joanne Keogh, Production Manager for Esquire, added; “The sleek design of the cover is really enhanced by the clear foil. The title has been given a glossy lift which contrasts the uncoated stock beautifully”.

The Big Black Book was printed by Cardiff based printers, Westdale Press using UV litho 4 colour process, 1 PMS spot colour onto a 350gsm Arcoprint uncoated stock.

Edited, designed and styled by the senior team behind the most sophisticated UK men’s magazine, British Esquire, and calling on some of the best men's style writers and fashion photographers in the business, The Big Black Book is a genuinely useful resource for the aspirational modern man, as well as being a beautiful and luxurious object in its own right.

The Big Black Book, which debuted in the US in 2006, has been a huge global hit with advertisers in the luxury market by reaching high-net-worth men with real influencing power. Editions worldwide including those in the US and China have proved a big attraction for brands in the fashion, watches, cars, fragrance and skincare and premium spirits sectors.

The UK version of The Big Black Book, which is also available as a digital edition, provides a perfect environment and unique audience for advertisers communicating to sartorial gents with high spending power. The hard cover UK issue retails on newsstands at £6.
