Designers & Books Festival: Onstage and Offstage
Fashion Institute of Technology, New York
Saturday 12 November
If you happen to be in NYC this Saturday, you're in for a treat—the Designers & Books Festival, a one-day conference celebrating the relationship between books and the creative community. Hosted by Stephen Heller, who knows a thing or two on the subject, the day will be filled with panel discussions covering everything from the critical importance of the archive, to the recent publishing trend for facsimilie editions of out-of-print classics. Panel participants include Julie Lasky, Jason Long of OMA, Adam Michaels of Project Projects, and many more. Subtitled 'Onstage & Offstage', the event encourages discussion within the audience as well as amongst panel speakers, offering the opportunity for visiting book lovers to get involved. Best of all, it's free to attend!
