From cover to cover: the importance of design in publishing

The Society of Young Publishers and Friends is running an interesting event. Here you have the information.

Company; The Society of Young Publishers and Friends
Name: From cover to cover: the importance of design in publishing
Date: Tuestday, 28th of September · 18:30 - 21:30
Place: Women's Library, London Metropolitan University
Old Castle Street,
London, United Kingdom

About the event: Don't judge a book by its cover? Whoever came up with that proverb clearly didn’t realise quite how influential a striking cover image and an engaging blurb can be for a potential book buyer.

At our September speaker meeting we’ll be asking a panel of industry experts to share their thoughts on what makes a book cover successful.

James Spackman, Sales and Marketing Director at Hodder & Stoughton, has kindly agreed to re-visit th ...e topic of his talk at this year’s Bookseller Cover Design conference and explain to us the importance of a good blurb.

Tony Davis, Design Director at Art Meets Matter (best known for their iconic Penguin merchandise), will be talking about design more generally and the way that words and images interact both on and off the page.

Together we’ll analyse some of the biggest books from the last decade and then look to the future, questioning whether the emergence of ebooks renders cover designs unnecessary or whether we always really will judge a book by its cover.

Join us on 29th September from 6.30pm at the Women’s Library in London Metropolitan University, E1 7NT, or for drinks afterwards at B@1 Spitalfields, E1 6AN.
