Bernd Lohaus: IM SEIN BEI
Bernd Lohaus: IM SEIN BEI is the most comprehensive and richly illustrated monograph devoted to the artist to date. Across a wide variety of mediums – sculpture, installation, painting, drawing and writing – Lohaus distilled materials to their unadorned essence, while infusing them with poetry through the stark selection of words and colours.
Edited by Thomas Desmet, designer and editor who has worked with artists and writers for more than ten years, and Stella Lohaus, the director of LLS LLS Paleis (formerly known as LLS 387), an independent and non-profit art space in Antwerp, and daughter of Bernd Lohaus.
Bernd Lohaus: IM SEIN BEI includes essays by Lorenzo Benedetti, Marie-Pascale Gildemyn, Ulrike Lindmayr and Dieter Schwarz.
Published with the support of the Flemish Government.
The Natural Enemies of Books:
A messy history of women in printing and typography
The Natural Enemies of Books is a response to the groundbreaking 1937 publication Bookmaking on the Distaff Side, which brought together contributions by women printers, illustrators, authors, printers, typographers and typesetters, highlighting the print industry’s inequalities and proposing a takeover of the history of the book.
Edited by feminist graphic design collective MMS (Maryam Fanni, Matilda Flodmark and Sara Kaaman), The Natural Enemies of Books includes newly commissioned essays and poems by Kathleen Walkup, Ida Börjel, Jess Baines, Ulla Wikander and conversations with former typesetters Inger Humlesjö, Ingegärd Waaranperä, Gail Cartmail and Megan Downey, as well as reprints of the original book and other publications.
The Natural Enemies of Books is funded by the Artistic Board and through an artist-in-residence period at Grafikens Hus, in collaboration with the Södertälje Konstnärskrets.
One and Many Mirrors:
Perspectives on Graphic Design Education
One and Many Mirrors is a compilation of writing by practitioners and educators who question the rules and hierarchies of graphic design education today. The book includes interviews with, and essays by Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey, Vincent Chan, Europa, Rob Giampietro, Corinne Gisel, James Langdon, Nina Paim, Lucille Tenazas, Teal Triggs and many others.
Edited by two design educators – Australian designer-publisher Brad Haylock and New Zealand designer-musician Luke Wood – the book holds a mirror up to the ways in which the field of graphic design is imagined, taught, received and reproduced. This book is essential reading for all educators, students and practitioners who are concerned with where graphic design education has come from and where it might be heading.
