We are delighted to announce a new series of our conversations with designers, Graphic Negotiations, starting on 20 September.
Book Works sees graphic design as crucial to realising artists and writers’ ideas in the final form of the book. While conventionally designers often become involved in the later stages of a book’s production, and with a limited brief, we involve the designer in a collaborative process from the start, with designer, artist and editor working together to create a book that realises the artists’ vision.
For this new series, we’ll be joined by four new designers: Martin McGrath (20 Sep); Maeve Redmond (18 Oct); Mark El-Khatib (15 Nov) and Abeera Kamran (13 Dec).
All events are free and online, at 1pm on a Wednesday.
The first event ‘Conversations as Methods’ is on 20th September with Martin McGrath who will be speaking on his recent work and artist’s book design. Book your free place here.
