Date: October 6th
Time: 16.00 - 21.00
Location: SUPeR Book Store, Blågårdsgade 31C, København, Denmark

Event organized by Formal Setting.

About the book:

“Notes on Book Design” is a collection of 50 texts written by designers Amanda-Li Kollberg and Siri Lee Lindskrog from the design and typography agency Formal Settings. The texts are based on books from Hopscotch Reading Room, an antiquarian and bookstore in Berlin.

“With a new book as the starting point for each text, our main focus lies on the visual and tactile aspects of the book – materials, format, typography, binding, etc. The goal is to try to understand the role and potential of books from a design perspective – to map out what they communicate through their physical form.” The texts draw parallels between the book as a design object and the cultural movements, political landscapes, and economic conditions under which it is created.

The 50 texts are paired with an introduction by Formal Settings, a foreword by Hopscotch Reading Room, and an afterword in which designer, writer, and educator Prem Krishnamurthy adds further reflections and perspectives to the project.

At the launch, Formal Settings will provide an introduction to the book, followed by a reading. The book is in English, and the event will be conducted in English.
