by Emily Nonko The first-ever Designers and Book Fair was held last weekend at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. The two-day fair featured 35 publishers and around 1,500 books ranging in subjects from architecture to design to urban planning. (Titles were as varied as Why Architects Wear Black to 100 Ideas That Changed Fashion to Design After Modernism.) The fair opened Friday with a panel on the future of book design. The following Saturday and Sunday, publishers from Europe and the United States took up residency at FIT. Each day was interspersed with panels covering book design, fashion, international design, and architecture. The weekend was a successful merger of many fields and professions—a spotlight on images, craft, and the written word.
