Notes on Book Design

Book design | Writing
Notes on Book Design is a collection of 50 texts that we’ve written, based on books from the collection of Hopscotch Reading Room in Berlin. The texts draw parallels between the book as a design object and the cultural movements, political landscapes and economic conditions under which it was created.

The 50 texts are paired with our intro­duction, a foreword by Hopscotch Reading Room and an afterword in which designer, author and educator Prem Krishnamurthy offers additional framing and perspective to the project.
