When it comes to translating the energy and spirit of music into a tangible form, Emma Viola has it down to an art form. With a unique take on the world of music, Emma’s captivating band photography comes to life in her zine, The Issue. This project is not just a zine, it’s a testament to the power of print and the role it plays in the world of music. ????????
Ex Why Zed’s excellence in Music Photobook Printing UK was key to bringing this zine to life. Our commitment to quality and attention to detail resulted in a publication that truly sings. Our understanding of what musicians and music enthusiasts look for in a zine helped make The Issue a hit. ????????
The specification for this project was music to our ears. With a 280x210mm dimension, the zine was slightly smaller than A4, a deliberate choice that caught the readers’ eyes. The 4pp cover was printed onto 350gsm Gloss with Gloss Lamination to the outer, and the 68pp text onto 170gsm Gloss. The end result was a high gloss laminated cover and punchy gloss inside pages that made the energetic images leap off the page, ideal for the impactful photography. The entire ensemble was then trimmed, collated and perfect bound, creating a perfect symphony of print. ????????
The zine is filled with powerful images that evoke the visceral experience of live music. The photos capture the raw, unfiltered energy of the performances, pulling the reader into the heart of the music scene. Each image is a story, a snapshot of a moment frozen in time, and together they form a stunning visual narrative of the vibrant world of music. ????????
