I Love Books
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.

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."

Tokyo-based designer Craig Mod may no longer be involved with indie publishing imprint Chin Music Press, but in this presentation held last year at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 51 he talks about the company he co-founded.
You may have caught Tokyo-based design Craig Mod's recent online piece on the state of print and digital book publishing, "Books in the Age of the iPad" -- it got so much attention even the New York Times took notice -- but before it got written up as a proper essay it was in the form of talk given during Tokyo's "Artalking" series, and before that the idea was presented in this presentation at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 68. Craig also covered the re-launch of one of his many projects, the newly tweet-powered Hitotoki.

Recap: Daegu Vol. 2
The South Korean city of Daegu hosted their lively PKN Daegu Vol. 2 evening on this past February 26. According to the Vol. 2 page, the soiree was "filled with creative and diverse presentations such as the current of PLACES in Daegu, an architectural approach to Daegulite identity as a national center for performing arts, Dutch coffee, cultural & historic interpretations of Korean traditional food, cultural identity through a lens of tatooing, textile-art, juxtaposing contexts, connecting people with like-minds, locally-oriented classical music performances, and publishing an infomation magazine for foreign readers." Photos of this event are up on Daegu's Vol. 2 event page and "motion-grapher" Hyun-Ki Shun has made a short video of the festivities as well.
Books in the Age of the iPad
"Print is dying. Digital is surging. Everyone is confused." In today's Presentation of the Day, "Books in the Age of the iPad" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 68, writer/designer/developer Craig Mod prophesies the impending doom of text-only publishing, and welcomes with open arms the oncoming (ongoing?) revolution in digital publishing. Craig discusses his role in this uprising in the form of his and AQ Works' collaboration on "hitotoki" (now re-branded and re-launching as "hi") a way for people to create small narratives based on their everyday experiences in the city. For further reading on this topic, check out his journal article.
We Want Your Presentation
BitSummit MMXIV is now behind us, and what a fantastic celebration of indie gaming that was! We were able to record 10 presentations from participating indie game developers on the show floor during the event -- check out our event page to see who took part -- and we'll be publishing these presentations in this Channel towards the end of the week. While at the festival, we met quite a few participants who were interested in taking part in our recordings, but weren't able to prepare a presentation on the spot, and so we're opening up the Channel. If you took part in BitSummit MMXIV and would like to record a PechaKucha presentation to be included here, get in touch! It can be about your experience at BitSummit, about the games you had on show, or an overview of your experience in gaming. Share your story!
