RSA Book Design Lecture
We were off to the RSA on Monday for the Book design: Past, Present and Future event. It was part lecture, part conversation, held in honour of the late John Curtis, senior editor at Penguin. The speakers included illustrators Quentin Blake and David Gentleman, disucssing their work with Curtis, and book design in general. It all dwelled slightly on the Past rather than the Present and Future, but that's pretty much to be expected for the RSA, which always has the slight feel of an old boys club.
That said, they're old boys with an eye for the future: you can check out the MP3 version of the lecture here.
