Fine Dining by Matt Kelly: A Feast for the Eyes ????????️

A Unique Blend of Photography and Hedonism ????

“Fine Dining 2099” is a captivating photobook by Matthew Kelly, a renowned photographer and party promoter. This book is a compilation of Kelly’s work, documenting his experiences as part of the ‘Fine Dining’ collective’s hedonistic parties across London and beyond during the 00s. It’s a visual feast that captures the essence of an era in London’s ever-evolving nightlife. Kelly’s archival work acts alongside previous candid music documentary (Ewan Spencer, Seana Gavin) as an invaluable document of an era in London’s ever-evolving nightlife. [^1^][^2^]

Printing on G.F.Smith Colorplan: A Touch of Elegance ????✨

The book is a testament to the power of high-quality printing. It’s a 280x212mm book, with a 4pp cover printed onto 270gsm Colorplan Ebony with Dapple embossing. We now recommend choosing Colorplan standard rather than an embossed texture if you are planning to print the cover. The surface will then be smoother and easier for the ink to sit on. Textured card looks great but it more akin to wedding stationery and can pick off.

To add further complexity, the cover has 125mm flaps to the front and back with a 12mm overhang, and it’s printed with white ink to the outer. The 132pp text is printed onto 170gsm Gloss, with full colour print throughout. The book is trimmed, collated and perfect bound, resulting in a sleek and elegant finish. The use of G.F.Smith Colorplan paper adds a touch of sophistication, making the book a tactile delight as well as a visual one.

Ex Why Zed makes self publishing a truly pleasurable experience!
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.
