Jetlag 2 flies the long haul! Taking the most lucid tour of the planet of the Third Millennium, Jetlag 2 probes the inner lives of men and women of our time, depicting and analyzing them from the inside as they exist in the spaces of nameless international hotels, far from home, far from themselves.
"Jet Lag is a specious title for such a forward moving, dynamic book. Jet makes sense, but I doubt that any part of this book lags behind the visual culture. In fact, it gets to the terminal way ahead of time".
Steven Heller, Design Author and Co-Chair MFA Designer as Author - School of Visual Arts, New York
"Just a few lines are enough to catch the complexity of a character. Sharp. Uncompromising. Simply outstanding!"
Quintin Leeds, Creative Director - Le Monde
"A wild journey. Frantic. Jagged. Beautiful. These faces that feel like people we have seen - perhaps from staring at strangers in a confined space. A hefty volume with its solid pages. A book with its teeth set on edge. Alessandro Gottardo and Franco Cervi have crafted a compelling, beautiful book".
Nanette Bisher, Creative Director - The San Francisco Chronicle
