London Centre for Book Arts
Books. Art, Craft & Community presents a thriving ecosystem of papermakers, printers, bookbinders, artists, designers and publishers from round the world. They draw on traditional skills, art and experimentation to make books that matter today. In twenty-six profiles – spanning traditional craftspeople to modern makers reimagining the book for new audiences – and contributions from experts, we are given an insight into the history and contemporary context of the processes behind the books.
Selected by Simon Goode and Ira Yonemura of the London Centre for Book Arts, these artists and makers share a spirit of curiosity and resilience. They not only adapt to new ways in which readers engage with books, but are forging new possibilities for their craft along the way.
