Books. Art, Craft & Community presents a thriving ecosystem of papermakers, printers, bookbinders, artists, designers, and publishers from around the world. Its authors, Ira Yonemura and Simon Goode of the London Centre for Books Arts were delighted to be asked to prepare a “book about books”. It was an opportunity to celebrate people whose work inherently takes place behind the scenes, in hidden studios, and who are rarely mentioned.

The process of transforming simple materials into a recognizable book form can take place in many different ways and often involves highly skilled artists, technicians and craftspeople. With 26 profiles of experts and their contributions, we are given an insight into the history and contemporary context of the processes behind the books. Selected by the authors, these artists and makers share a spirit of curiosity and resilience. They not only adapt to new ways that readers engage with books, but are forging new possibilities for their craft along the way. 

The content of this book truly shows that after decades of doubt about its future, a book is still an object made with great care and a sense of purpose.
