Designer Dialogues A Book on Books + GOOD By DESIGN + Type for Type
ABOUT A BOOK ON BOOKS
From sheets of papyrus to the mass press-printed volumes as we know them today, books as we know them have come a long way. Although digital technology has impacted how we consume information, book design has survived as a means of showcasing creativity and craftsmanship, as books themselves remain important sources of inspiration and knowledge.
A Book on Books showcases some of the world’s best book design work in celebrating the designers’ contributions to preserving reading culture. It also captures the voices of key influencers from publishing, printmaking, bookfair-organising, and bookshop-owning standpoints, as they continue to play a crucial role in keeping the book-making industry alive in the future.
ABOUT GOOD BY DESIGN
The world today can be an infinitely better place. With the increasing amount of issues affecting us as a whole in recent years, such as the global health crises, environmental destruction, and socio-economic disparities, the onus is on each and every one of us to do everything we can for the generations to come.
Design has been—and will always be—our crucial tool in this regard. Whether it be through campaigns that rally for action, posters that raise awareness, or products that actually change bad habits, designers combine creativity, craft, and compelling visuals to materialise concepts that can effectively transform the way we live. GOOD by DESIGN collates the best projects and insights to inspire not only those who wish to do good, but also hope for all in a better tomorrow.
ABOUT TYPE FOR TYPE
Custom typefaces have become an increasingly common means for forward-thinking brands to establish and further strengthen their visual identities. By expressing a unique personality or supporting a campaign effectively, these typefaces go beyond aesthetics and achieving marketing objectives to build value for the brands over the long term. Type for Type collates some of the best custom typography work around the world that demonstrates both creative and commercial ingenuity. It also features cover stories that offer insights by some of the top design studios in the industry as well as compelling project- and technique-related details to inspire both designers and clients alike.
