Picks from the Book Industry Guild of New York’s 26th Annual Show
This show honors the art of bookmaking in all its glory: beautiful papers, masterful printing, gorgeous illustrations and typography, expert binding; in short, all the elements of gift-worthy “keeper” books that are as beautiful as they are smart (just like you!). The books honored by the Book Industry Guild are anti-e-books. They’re a feast for the eyes as well as food for the soul.
