The Art & Culture of Book Covers

PRESENTED ON MAY 23, 2015
IN WILLIAMSBURG @ VOL 12

Do you judge a book by its cover? It's okay, most everyone does. That's why publishers put so much into book cover design. As both a publisher and an author, Greg Lilly tries to find that perfect balance between just enough to interest you, and too much clutter to pick it up.

APPLAUD THIS!

I Love Books

BY ANJA LUTZ
@ VOL 13 ON NOV 07, 2014

"I love books and all aspect of books."

In "I Love Books" from PechaKucha Night Bangalore Vol. 13, Anja Lutz is a Berlin-based book designer specialising in contemporary art publications. She studied at London College of Communication and the Jan van Eyck Akademie. She was Visiting Professor at the American University of Beirut and the Bauhaus University in Weimar, as well as Design Fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude. She is the initiator of the experimental publication platform shift! that has won numerous awards and was present at various festivals and exhibitions. Anja is also co-founder and art director of The Green Box art editions, a publisher of artist books. She develops and designs in close collaboration with the artists and has recently published the first interactive art e-book.

"I am interested in local crafts and the Hampi crafts project, initiated by Jaaga. I am also planning to research popular crafts in and around Bangalore. The way I work with artists when designing their books, is always a collaborative one. The same goes for the »shift!« publication projects, where collaboration is at the heart of the activity, drawing from each other's ideas, inspiration and expertise. In the same way I want to view a book on local crafts, by not just doing a book about, but first and foremost a book with the crafts people. This could also go as far as including their crafts in the actual making of the book.

I would also like to put a focus on the sustainability aspect of local and popular crafts, insofar as they offer highly inventive ways of using and reusing material. This re-appropriation of existing and often discarded material constitutes an important aspect of how we use the possibilities around us, with awareness and respect. I believe there is a lot to learn from the people who produce these re-appropriations and I would like to research their approaches and products. And seek an exchange with them, to develop new items and ideas based on their knowledge and experience."
