“The Form of the Book Book“ is based on the same named conference at St. Bride Library in London on 30. January 2009. First held as lectures, the texts and essays in this publication circle around the original idea from Jan Tschichold’s “The Form of the Book“. Contemporary designer discuss what is left of his thesis after 40 years and several technical and moral changes of society.
Lectures about the architects Gordon Matta-Clark and Le Corbusier as well as typographer Herbert Spencer show that making books is more than just setting type – it is about a wider field of scope related to the chosen topic. “The Form of the Book Book“ aims to enlarge our perspective and appreciation not only for the layout but for the whole aspects of the aspiring job of making books.
