Photographer James Bollen spent four years documenting Shanghai’s abandoned houses, marked for demolition. The beautiful photographs in his book ‘Wallpaper, The Shanghai Collection’ perfectly capture the interiors of the doomed buildings.

We printed the inner pages on our new Konica Minolta C1100 digital press. The cover was printed litho in CMYK with a complementary special pantone, on our Heidelberg 74F litho press. The book was perfect bound in A4 Landscape format, using an FSC triple coated stock.

‘Wallpaper’ includes short excerpts from some of William Morris’s lectures on architecture, aesthetics and politics, published in ‘Hopes and Fears for Art’. It is a fitting follow up to James earlier work ‘Jim’s Terrible City’, which depicts Shanghai through the lens of JG Ballard.

Do you have an independent photo book you want to get into print? Would you like advice about the publishing process, from file set up, through to delivery and distribution? If so, please get in touch.
