5 x 7 + Chicago
March 5, 2012
I'm excited to say the 5 x 7 + Chicago series is finished! Our first in many collaborative series to come.
For this first series we decided to stay close to home. We chose 3 studios/people representing various mediums in Chicago to develop unique concepts for our format (32 pages, 2 colors, 5x7 inches). We even reformatted to bring the last concept to life!
Our first book with Debbie Carlos was a wonderful extension of her unique process of wandering and shooting. We selected a small group of photos from her year-long journey to develop a spontaneous narrative for Note Well.
Our Final book with Ina Weise was challenging and exciting. Our standard format did not work with her giant mountain drawings. So, we decided to have the 5x7 book fold out to 7x20 in From Here to Here.
All books are now available for purchase at 5x7books.com.
Thanks to Brian Guido for the amazing photos!
