We wouldn't be mad if you called us bookworms. At Core77, we proudly review books as part of our mission to be a great resource for practicing designers. So we were excited to see that our friends at Designers & Books put together a great program for the first Designers & Books Fair happening in New York at the end of this month.
The Book Fair will be a great starting point for amping up your fall reading list—35 US and European book publishers and booksellers will display and sell the newest titles for fall as well as offering important backlist titles. There will also be rare and out-of-print book dealers; demonstrations of book arts, including calligraphy, letterpress printing, bookbinding and book signings. Besides the exhibition, the Book Fair also includes 17 programs with designers in conversation.
Some of the conversations we're looking most forward to attending include Bikes and Books (with builders, retailers and book designers), Chinese Design Culture Now (with Core77 Design Awards 2012 Jury Captain Lorraine Justice), Karim Rashid in Conversation with Debbie Millman and How To Get Published in the World of Design Books (with Core77 Design Awards 2011 Jury Captain Steven Heller).
