Screen Printed Nintendo UK History By Adam Benton

Sometimes we receive ideas form our fans via (please let us know if you would, or would not, like your name mentioned in an article if the idea is chosen).  This is one of those “fan finds”.

Adam Benton, a graphic design student from Essex, created this screen printed book recapping Nintendo’s UK history.

“This is one of my final books for my bookmaking and screenprinting brief.

I wanted to keep the theme throughout so I went for an orange cover, and to keep it simple embossed the lettering onto it. The inside consists a little history of the company, some memorable people, and a timeline of when each console came out in Europe and all the images are screenprinted and then scanned in for the book. A separate folder full of original prints will be along side it. The book is Japanese stab bound and printed on Japanese rice paper to keep with the companies origins.”


I really like the design of this Nintendo tribute, and would love to see items like this included as incentives for buying special edition games and/or consoles.  Could you imagine receiving a small piece of Final Fantasy history, in this style, with Theatrythm instead of the stickers and stylus?
