Coffee Table Art Book Printing: Unearthing Urban Art in “Second Life” by Guido Bollino

The concrete jungle of our urban landscapes hides a treasure trove of artistry, often overlooked. Guido Bollino, an Italy-born, London-based photographer and writer, has a keen eye for such art gems. His hardback art book, “Second Life 2013 – 2022”, captures weather-worn posters redrawn by time and the elements, giving them a spontaneous second life as hidden city gems. Teaming up with Ex Why Zed, a leading name in coffee table art book printing, Bollino’s urban art exploration finds a fitting home in a beautifully crafted, high-quality print edition.

Guido Bollino: A Lens that Transforms the Everyday into Art

Born in Alessandria, Italy, in 1982, Guido Bollino has travelled far and wide, with his work rooted in the exploration of culture, history, and the human mind. Second Life” is a testament to Bollino’s talent for storytelling and reportage photography, his camera lens transforming the mundane into something extraordinary. His art book captures the ephemeral beauty of weather-worn posters, their organic transformation serving as an unwitting testament to the passage of time.

Brilliant communication from start to finish. Mike had endless patience for the many questions we asked. The guides provided were easy to follow and super helpful (the video guides are a must watch too). Our order of hardback illustrated children's books was delivered expertly packaged and on time. As for the finished product itself - stunning - a real joy to finally hold, beautifully made and perfectly printed! We couldn't have asked for more. Well, we did - we instantly placed an order for paperback children's colouring books too, which we are equally as happy with. Look forward to working with Ex Why Zed again in the future.
