The Kentucky Derby

by Bill Doolittle

A history of the famous sporting event with imagery by the venue’s leading photographers.

192 pages, 9-3/4" x 11-3/4" hardbound. 170+ photographs. Designed by Eric Morrell, EGM Communications. Published by Carpe Diem Books and Shircliff Publishing. Project management by RLO Media Productions.

Work performed: color correction; retouching; preflight layout and correct problems; press-match color proofs; copy corrections.

A unique feature of this project is the use of Digimarc Discover® technology. Selected photographs contain digital watermarks, invisible to the reader, but not to a mobile app that senses the watermark (or "Digimarc" as they are called) and directs the reader to an online video related to the photograph. Readers may absorb the text, admire the imagery, and then point their phone at the page and watch film footage of famous Derby moments. Mars Premedia is proud to have pioneered this unique use of Digimarc technology, a first for a print project of this kind.
