Book Description

1 Feb 2013
Digital media are disappointing for books. All books look the same on an iPad, for example. On a monitor, a book isn t thick or thin, big or small. Features such as a Japanese binding, embossing, letterpress printing, or gilt edging are only possible in print. Consequently, it isn t surprising that young, contemporary designers, publishers, typographers, illustrators, and editors are enthusiastically ringing in a new era for printed books. Fully Booked: Ink on Paper is a collection of books and other printed products that celebrate the distinctiveness of design, materials, techniques, workmanship, and production methods and push their limits. Structured into five chapters that each represent a key role that print plays today: The Storyteller, The Showmaster, The Teacher, The Businessman, and The Collector, it showcases publications whose innovative printing and binding befit their unconventional subject matter or radical editorial and design concepts. The tactile experience is as indispensable for the included editors, authors, and designers as it is for their readers. Examples range from personal projects with the smallest print runs to premium artist books or brand publications. Fully Booked: Ink on Paper features work by groundbreaking designers and design studios such as A Practice for Everyday Life, Coralie Bickford-Smith, Irma Boom, Deutsche & Japaner, John Gall, Joost Grootens, Julia Hasting, Heimann und Schwantes, Jung + Wenig, Konst & Teknik, Leftloft, Made Thought, Peter Mendelsund, Niessen & de Vries, Prill Vieceli Cremers, Raffinerie AG, and Studio Laucke Siebein. Its stunning range of visual examples is put into context by texts from Andrew Losowsky, books editor at The Huffington Post. By documenting current experiments and future possibilities for printed publications, Fully Booked: Ink on Paper makes clear that the most exciting phase in the history of printed matter has just begun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 19 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not one you'd want to take on the train to read due to its size but a great look into book cover design. Furthermore I'm not aware of any other book out there that addresses so many cover designs, so in that sense its fairly unique. Nicely designed too!
