One of the leading figures in international book design will not be in Brisbane (woe is me) but he will be in Sydney and Melbourne this August…
ABDA is delighted to announce that acclaimed British book designer David Pearson will be visiting Australia this August. The designer behind Penguin’s Great Ideas series and Ridley Scott’s showreels—not to mention his own publishing venture White’s Books. If someone could please say hi from me, and maybe give him a hug for injecting some serious love into the covers of the classics.
