The Book Is Not a PDF
Celebrated Dutch designer Irma Boom specializes in making books. And every book she makes is special. Through her innovative manipulation of content, her use of unconventional materials, and her mastery of production techniques, she pushes the boundaries of book design, making each a sculptural object that can be manufactured at scale. On this rare visit to San Francisco, Boom will use an overhead camera to present several of her books from Letterform Archive’s collection, exploring the process of creating each one, and demonstrating the tactile and sensory possibilities of the form.
