China Design Bookshop - Book Online

Book Binding Demonstration - Book Online
Saturday, 18 April 2015, 12:30 - 13:00

Peruse - China Design Bookshop is a two-week exhibition curated by the China Design Centre. The exhibition coincides with the London Book Fair and its event programme, London Book and Screen Week.

The first week of the exhibition will allow you to immerse and educate yourself in the world of contemporary Chinese design. The books chart the surge of creativity in architecture, interior design, fashion, graphic design, even tattoo art. It’s an opportunity for London’s creative community, both professional and student, to access and learn about China. Some of the books are designed by some of China’s most famous graphic designers and artists.

The 200 book catalogue will be available after the event and there may be a possibility of ordering specific titles. Prices range from £25 to £250. Please note that some of the books in the exhibition are one-offs.

The second week features a celebration of the cultural differences in the art of bookbinding. The Chinese publishing house Artron will be flying over their bookbinders to lead a series of exclusive workshops. To reserve places, please click here to register.
