It has been an extremely busy time here at the St Bride Foundation recently. The Layton room renovations are coming to an end and are nearly finished just in time for the grand opening of the first Designer Bookbinders exhibition, ‘Covered’ which begins next week and something us all at the foundation are extremely excited about; below is a sneak peek of the Layton room getting its finishing touches!
Last month we had our first lecture in collaboration with Eyemagazine which was extremely successful . Speakers included Mark Porter, Mark Wilson and Wilson Fletcher and focused on the future of editorial design on multiple platforms such as smartphones and tablets. We are looking forward to the next one in June with Henrik Kubel! In fact our events diary is looking pretty full with three more lectures taking place between now and the beginning of May…to find out more information on upcoming events click here
Finally todolist.org.uk voted St Bide Library number 9 in the top 10 libraries in London and we couldn’t be happier about this! It’s great to see that other people recognise how wonderful the St Bride Foundation is as of course I am just a tad bias in my opinion of the place!
