We’re thrilled to announce that a book that we’ve been working on for the past year is now out in the world.
Making Books by the London Centre for Book Arts (Simon Goode and Ira Yonemura) is a step-by-step guide to creating books by hand at home based on our popular workshops. Published by Pavilion, we were lucky enough to work with Yuki Sugiura on photos, Jay Cover on illustrations, and Makoto Yamada on the design.
In early July we launched our Kickstarter campaign to expand and improve the London Centre for Book Arts to meet the needs of our members and community. Since then, we have been overwhelmed by the response from friends, neighbours, and complete strangers from all over the world. In the end, we exceed our goal of £18,000 by more than £6,000!
The money raised will go directly towards:
- refurbishment of the existing studio space and the new extension
- moving, cataloguing, and expanding our reference library
- building a new space dedicated to reprographics and publishing
- repair or replacement of key equipment.
A heartfelt thank you for your generosity and support from all of us at LCBA.
