Our excitement is mounting daily for the upcoming, inaugural Designers & Books Fair, which will take place at FIT in Manhattan on Saturday, October 27th and Sunday, October 28th.
You are probably already familiar with the exceptional Designers & Books website, which, among other things, features lists of favorite books compiled by the world’s design luminaries. It’s where you go to get reading recommendations from Chip Kidd, Maya Lin, Robert Venturi, Jonathan Adler, and dozens and dozens more, as if they were all close personal friends.
Now… imagine this great confluence of design world dignitaries and their favorite books (including the books they’ve written and designed) and their thoughts about books, publishing, design, fashion, architecture, and more, gathered in person, and you can see why we are looking forward to the Fair. Here’s a list of the people who will be speaking at FIT during the Fair; many of them will also be signing their own books after their presentations. Frankly, we wish we could attend all of these panels, talks and discussions. We will be in the Exhibit Hall, and invite you to stop by and say hello. As a bit of extra incentive, we’re offering you a discount code that you can use to waive the $10 Exhibit Hall admission fee. Follow this link, and enter the code “YALE”. We look forward to seeing you there.
