Trolleyology presents previously unseen material from the making of the award-winning books, including personal images, contact sheets and photographers’ recollections, documenting the unique stories from each book and the importance of this small but potent publishing house. It also features interviews with our photographers, writers, artists and friends, from the worlds of photography, art and publishing.

Trolleyology brings together photographers including Nan Goldin, Alex Majoli, Stanley Greene, Paolo Pellegrin, Adam Broomberg, Oliver Chanarin, Tom Stoddart, Nina Berman, Thomas Dworzak, Alixandra Fazzina, Robin Maddock, and Jamie Morgan. It also includes contributions from other members of the Trolley family such as the artists Paul Fryer, Sarah Lucas, Polly Morgan, Mat Collishaw, Le Gun and writers Iphgenia Baal, Sean O Hagan, Julian Stallabrass and cultural historian Barry Miles. The book contains a foreword by Serpentine Gallery directors Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
