Yesterday was the first day of the two-week long Booksfromthefuture Summer School hosted by LCBA. The programme is organised and taught by Yvan Martinez and Joshua Trees, both designers and educators. Their most recent book, Thought Experiments in Graphic Design Education can be purchased here. This year, the Summer School is co-taught by Dante Carlos, who’s book Art & Leisure and Art & Leisure we produced last year.
We recently had the pleasure of visiting the artists’ book collection at the Chelsea College of Arts. Thanks to Gustavo Grandal Montero for the tour and for maintaining such an amazing and invaluable collection.
On Saturday and Sunday, LCBA ran a series of events and workshops as part of the Grand Opening Festival of the new Foyles flagship bookshop on Charing Cross Road. A big thank you to everyone helped out, to Foyles, and to Esme Winter (http://www.esmewinter.co.uk/) for donating their beautiful pattern papers for the workshops.
