The New York Art Book Fair starts today, and for all those fortunate enough to be in the vicinity, there is one event that I will be very sorry to miss. Werkplaats Typografie – a programme rotating around the intellectual theory behind the inception and consequent practice of professional design – present publicly for the first time the Mary Shelley Facsimile Library. Consisting of bootleg copies, this bibliographic accumulation is full of references, open for “intrepid readers to critically review and enrich the selection.” Discourse about design should always be encouraged, and they’ve also promised refreshments, which is nice.
