Produced by the London Centre for Book Arts, this publication introduces the reader to a wonderful world of artisanal paper and ink makers, typographers, printers, bookbinders, artists, publishers, and booksellers. Take a peek into the universes of 30 craftspeople and makers located around the world, from Tokyo to New York. Some still follow age-old techniques, while others use the latest modern technologies, or even a combination of both. With ‘Books: Art, Craft & Community’ we not only understand how a book is put together and comes to be, but also gain insight into the dynamic ecosystem and colourful individuals and teams that elevate book production into an art form in itself.
