We check out the gloriously styled, head-space creating, surf-orientated photography of Yannick Schultz @bonjouryannick

A5 Books
4pp Cover onto 300gsm Uncoated
Matt laminated to the outer
58 inside pages onto 170gsm Uncoated
Four colour print throughout
Trimmed, collated and perfect bound

An A5 photography zine with 58 pages of skies, terrain and images that just make you want to get in a VW Camper and leave the city behind.

The 170gsm inside pages are more substantial, the max we can actually go to whilst ensuring the glue holds them in. There is a crispness and weight when the reader flicks through.

Ahh, check out Yannick’s superb photography. There is a nice flow without adhering to a specific grid layout. We love his smiley face love on the first text page. So cool.

The front cover on this particular version does seem to be onto a card lighter than the 300gsm that the final print run was produced onto. It could be 170gsm too with matt lamination which actually makes it easier to lift and open. Both would work. Wrapping the front cover image round onto the spine is one of our favourite design tricks. Going further, and wrapping it around to the back cover too is a superb technique! A top-class photo zine and you’d do well to copy the styling of this for a winning publication.
