Background to our publications.
Copies of our new book, Tanya Harrod’s The real thing, arrived before Christmas. We published it formally on 22 January, launching it that evening at a reception at the Art Workers’ Guild in London. The book, which gathers over 30 years’ worth of writing for magazines, journals and newspapers, follows the loose format of previous collections – Peter Campbell’s At … and Robin Kinross’s Unjustified texts. Like those two books, this one was printed in Belgium (Die Keure) and bound in the Netherlands (Binderij Hexspoor). Read more

Copies of our two new titles arrived in the office recently, and we are releasing them for sale today. These are Typography papers 9, edited by Eric Kindel and Paul Luna, and Isotype: design and contexts, 1925–1971, edited by Christopher Burke, Eric Kindel, and Sue Walker. Both books are collaborations with the Department of Typography at the University of Reading; the second book being an outcome of the Isotype revisited project there. Both books have been well printed by Die Keure in Bruges. Both have been well finished and bound (using cold glue) by, respectively, Sepeli in Evergem and Callenbach in Nijkerk. For some people the binding alone will make them worth getting hold of. For others the extraordinarily rich content will be the main reason for acquisition. Read more
