???????? New York Subway Art 1973 – 1975: A Photobook Printing Masterpiece by Keith Baugh

The Journey Begins????

In the heart of the bustling city of New York, a unique art form was emerging in the 1970s. The city’s subway system became a canvas for artists, their spray cans narrating stories of the time. One such observer was Keith Baugh, an iconic photographer who captured these fleeting moments of creativity. His collection, “New York Subway Art 1973 – 1975”, is a testament to the vibrant graffiti culture of the era.

The Art of Photobook Printing

When it came to bringing this collection to life, Keith Baugh chose Ex Why Zed, a leading independent book printing company in the UK. Known for our expertise in photography book printing, we were thrilled to work on this project. Our team, passionate about preserving the authenticity of each photograph, ensured professional quality photobooks that would do justice to Keith’s work.

The Print Spec of the Publication

The book was designed as a 200x240mm Landscape Perfect Bound Book. The 4pp cover was printed onto 350gsm Silk and matt laminated to the outer. The 198 inside pages were printed onto 170gsm Silk, ensuring high-resolution photobooks. The entire book was printed in four colours throughout and perfect bound, resulting in a stunning self-published book.

Become Immersed in the Moment

The result was a self-published photobook by Keith Baugh that not only showcased Keith’s incredible photography but also captured the essence of New York’s subway graffiti art in the mid-70s. The high-resolution photobooks were a hit, with readers appreciating the quality of the prints and the immersive experience they provided.

A Look at Other Photobook Printing Projects

Ex Why Zed has had the privilege of working on several other notable projects. Our portfolio includes a diverse range of photobooks, each with its unique charm and story. From the streets of New York by Sixstreetunder to the vibrant music scene in 2009-2019: A Decade in Music Photography by Josh Jordan, our photobooks have captured various facets of life.

We’ve also worked on projects like Living Lockdown by Sean McDonnell and On My Side by Valerie Bower, which provide a glimpse into the personal experiences of individuals. Each project, with its unique narrative and visual appeal, adds to our diverse portfolio.

Bringing Stories to Life

At Ex Why Zed, we believe in the power of print to bring stories to life. Our collaboration with Keith Baugh on the “New York Subway Art 1973-1975” project was a testament to this belief. As we continue to explore the world of USA photobook printing, we look forward to bringing more such stories to life.

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.
