What will you find in Cold Instinct
We wanted to give you the kind of book that we would want to buy for ourselves; that’s why we chose to print and produce it 100% in Italy. We worked side by side with our Italian supplier to test different paper and printing samples with a unique binding technique to ensure we delivered the best product possible.

High quality offset book
Thanks to their offset print technique, the photographs featured in the book are pixel perfect and full of color! The Cold Instinct book is 100% produced in Italy, and is printed on high gloss paper for the best quality achievable. We chose certified paper, produced exclusively with cellulose fibers from sustainably managed forests. Our suppliers guarantee the usage of 100% FSC® wood. We don't compromise.
Bespoke book binding
The COLD INSTINCT photography book is bound together using a traditional Swiss binding method. This binding technique, allows your book to lay flat when open on a table. This allows the spine to be detached from the cover, leaving the cloth lining intentionally exposed. This makes our books more durable: you can flip through your book as many times as you want, your cover will not get worn-out or damaged!
We Love & Respect Animals
The reptiles you see on Cold Instinct were by no means mistreated. None of these beauties were harmed, forcefully handled or leashed during these photoshoots. We love and respect animals and this book is here to celebrate their beauty!
