US Artist Book Printing

We are big fans of the colour shade used on the spine content. It is a nice graphic technique to use the sandy grey tone reversed out of the darker background.

Viewing the side profile, you can see the inside pages are section sewn. This gives the binding more resilience and allows the pages to open flatter than glue binding would. Just a note to say, this is a process that has higher set up costs, allow for an extra £200-300 so it might bee bet to stick with the standard glue binding if you are just printing a handful of copies.

The soft imagery on the cover opens to reveal artistic and aspirational photography throughout the 104 inside pages. 200gsm uncoated is used to create a heavy weight premium feel. As we said, the section sewn binding means the pages are robust and the double page spreads open completely flat. A very substantial and inspiring book.

This is exactly the kind of coffee table book we excel at producing at Ex Why Zed. It was a successful kickstarter campaign so the job was fully funded before it went to print.
