We've worked with both Sara de Bondt and Fraser Muggeridge in 2009, making catalogues for the Hockney retrospective and Frances Stark shows at Nottingham Contemporary, and for the Royal Academy. So when Calverts was offered the opportunity to sponsor the publication of a collection of essays on book design, edited by Sara and Fraser and published by Occasional Papers, we were more than pleased to sign up.
Printed mono on Kaskad paper and board, 'The Form of the Book Book' includes contributions from Catherine de Smet, James Goggin, Jenni Eneqvist, Roland Früh & Corina Neuenschwander, Sarah Gottlieb, Richard Hollis, Chrissie Charlton and Armand Mevis.
If you're a fan of beautifully designed and printed books, please join us at the launch this coming Wednesday, 16 December 2009, from 6.30 to 8.30pm at Artwords Bookshop, 20–22 Broadway Market, London E8 4QJ.
The Calvertistas will be there early, because we're having our Christmas dinner later in the evening, just down the road at Little Georgia in Goldsmith's Row. Should be a fun night!
