When it comes to action sport photography, John John Florence is a name that resonates with the rhythm of the ocean. His work, captured in the pages of the “View from a Blue Moon” books, is a testament to the raw power and beauty of the surfing world. The book, printed by Ex Why Zed, is a visual journey that takes readers from the blue waves of the ocean to the heart of the surfing community.
The book is a massive centrepiece, printed in 16 sections and joined together to form an eye-catching display of surfing prowess. The choice of an oversized paper gives the photography more impact, and the power of the waves gains even more prominence. The pages are printed with a yellow background, a cost-effective choice that still provides a premium feel. The Carson-esque typography accents the pages and produces dynamic layouts, guiding the reader through the idyllic narrative.
The client opted for uncoated stock for a tactile feel, with the images settling down into the paper. The book was printed on our litho presses, showcasing our expertise in bulk printing and creative industry printing. The result is a tactile experience that brings the reader closer to the action, feeling the spray of the ocean and the thrill of the ride.
The book measures 275x220mm, with a 4pp cover onto 300gsm Uncoated and Matt Lamination to the outer. The 60pp text is printed onto 120gsm Uncoated, with four colour print throughout. The book is trimmed, collated, and perfect bound, creating a seamless and professional finish that reflects the quality of the content.
