In his new book, photographer Holleley creates singularly unique, highly energetic, absolutely delightful, intersections between the art of the visual book, digital photography, and book design. It is part history and theory-of-the-artist book, part catalog of innovative contemporary practice, part primer on book design including typography and page layout, and part basic manual of digital photography that reviews Adobe Photoshop basics, scanning, image correction, color theory, and print management. Holleley manages to successfully orchestrate all of the above with clear, conversational, concise, sometimes highly personal, sometimes witty, writing. It is also chock-full of excellent color reproductions and illustrations garnered from many private and public collections, including his own. Rounding out the contents are chapters on copyright issues and bookbinding, a preface by Joan Lyons, a highly informative bibliography, and a very useful glossary. Holleley weds his love of technology with his passion for the book, and it is contagious! Highly recommended for the general reader and as a textbook for artists, photographers, writers, and designers. All levels. J. Natal Columbia College (IL)
