They have a touch of luxury. They are something special. They are simply beautiful: Art and Design Books are something with which one enjoys a sensual relationship. You don’t just turn their pages, you treat them like treasures…
But, what happens to these wonderful items in an era when digitalization and new technology are redefining the world of publishing from scratch? Is there still a place for these (sometimes) splendid volumes? Can the beauty of the book be saved these days?
We believe: Yes, it can! And yet, we are wondering: How?
At this exclusive talk, we will discuss the opportunities and challenges thrown up by the digital transformation of art and design books, with representatives from the field of visual culture, art and design publishing.
This session will be moderated and is co-presented by Motovun Group of International Publishers.
