The London Book Fair 2015 was held in Kensington Olympia this year and not at the usual Earls Court. There were complaints about the venue change, particularly the worry about lack of space and downsizing , but you can’t argue that the architecture and structure of building is rather glorious (even if it does act like a greenhouse and can become unbearably hot in the heat of the day!).
Here is The Quarto Group’s stand in all it’s glory, where Quintessence has a space. It’s great to see the whole company come together, for us to realise what a large organisation we’re a part of. It’s exciting to be around like minded people who share a love of books and passion for the industry. It was my third year of going along to the Fair and I’d say I enjoyed this one the most, taking my time to explore and appreciate the wonderful range of books that are being made out there.I came across one book that particularly caught my attention, Designing Design by Kenya Hara. It’s not a new book, first published in 2007, but one i’d not heard of or come across before, but loved the look of – I need to get it and read it, asap, the preface alone hooked me!
