The Form of the Book Book brings together essential essays on the book – its history, present, and possible futures – by preeminent graphic designers and graphic design theorists/historians including Chrissie Charlton, Catherine de Smet, James Goggin, Jennie Eneqvist, Roland Früh & Corina Neuenschwander, Sarah Gottlieb, Richard Hollis and Armand Mevis. In a nod to Jan Tschichold’s famous collection of essays The Form of the Book (1975), this book offers in-depth analyses of key moments in the history of book design in order to better imagine the many forms the book will take, and is already taking, in our digital age.

Fraser Muggeridge studio (Alexander Conway, Elliot Ellis, Michael Kelly, Fraser Muggeridge and Manon Veyssière) is a graphic design company based in London.
Throughout a wide range of formats, from artists’ books and exhibition catalogues to posters, marketing material, exhibitions, websites, film titles and music, the studio prioritises artists’ and writers’ content over the imposition of a signature style. By allowing images and texts to sustain their own intent and impact, each project is approached with typographic form and letterform playing a key role in arriving at a sympathetic yet subtly alluring object.
