Books are a meeting place. A sum of their many parts and artistic approaches. Form, concept, material and craft are bound together to create something rooted in its functionality, a process that often crosses over into the messier realm of art.

Books. Art, Craft & Community presents a thriving ecosystem of papermakers, printers, bookbinders, artists, designers and publishers from round the world. They draw on traditional skills, art and experimentation to make books that matter today.

In twenty-six profiles – spanning traditional craftspeople to modern makers reimagining the book for new audiences – and contributions from experts, we are given an insight into the history and contemporary context of the processes behind the books. Selected by Ira Yonemura and Simon Goode of the London Centre for Book Arts, these artists and makers share a spirit of curiosity and resilience. They not only adapt to new ways in which readers engage with books, but are forging new possibilities for their craft along the way.
