First Annual Designers and Books Book Fair – October 26-28th in NYC

Book fair clips

No matter what your role in today’s design world—whether as a design insider or as one of the general public’s many “design-inclined”—the emergence of design in the United States to a position of popular cultural prominence is exciting and inspiring. Nowhere is this increased level of interest and attention more apparent than in the world of design book publishing

With the 2011 launch of our website, we at Designers & Books have been in a unique position to witness the dynamics of the design world’s relationship to books. From Vitruvius to William Morris to Frank Lloyd Wright to Edith Wharton to Le Corbusier to Paul Rand—there has always been a particularly special and robust relationship between designers and books: reading them, writing them, designing them, collecting them, learning from them, and being inspired by them. Over the last year and a half we have had the opportunity to celebrate that relationship by publishing lists of books that esteemed members of the international design community have identified as personally important, meaningful, and formative.

We launched Designers & Books with 678 books and 55 book lists from designers and commentators in architecture, fashion, graphic design, interior design, landscape architecture, product and industrial design, and urban design. We now have over 130 lists that feature more than 1,400 books—plus we highlight over 600 books written by our contributors. Equally important, the site now also draws attention to more than 80 publishers and over 40 booksellers focused on design.

Being located in New York City has enabled us to experience firsthand the current level of excitement and heightened interest in books about design. The mix that exists here of publishers, booksellers, design organizations, and writers—in combination with perhaps the world’s most concentrated population of professional and also “would-be” designers—creates a special and uniquely dynamic environment for the world of design books.

It is the coming together of all of these factors that has led us to launch Designers & Books Fair 2012. In doing so, we are bringing together all the constituencies of the design book world in a major event in the heart of New York City—at one of the world’s leading design schools. With approximately 30 publishers, booksellers, and rare and out-of-print book dealers, at this gathering we will mark the release of new Fall 2012 titles, bring renewed attention to important backlist titles, and provide opportunities for stumbling on those special antiquarian finds. We will also present interviews and panel discussions with some of the best-known and most celebrated names in the design book world.

We hope you will join us.

M48 Apocalypse Tactical Tomahawk

This M48 Apocalypse tactical tomahawk is the ultimate tactical weapon. It is lightweight to be carried all day without added muscle fatigue and the blade of this offers a wide, upswept axe blade for mammoth chopping, slashing and zombie cutting potential. The secondary edge on the back side of the 2Cr13 stainless steel head is specially sharpened on both edges for a cutting and hooking attack. When combined, the spike and axe head make for an efficient personal defense and breaching tool against the zombie horde. The blade is securely attached to the paracord-wrapped, 30% nylon reinforced handle with three separate bolts.


Suck UK Salt and Pepper Bots

Well, it was inevitable. Passing the salt by hand just isn’t efficient enough in a world of bullet trains, pizza delivery and broadband. Luckily, the condiments have now come to life! Salt & Pepper Bots will waddle wherever you tell them to. Wind them up and – like mini Terminators – they’ll march across the table to wage war on bland food. The perfect robot butlers.


Form 1, a 3D printer created by designers for designers

A new company called Formlabs is trying to bridge the gap between the affordability of low-cost extruded plastic (FDM) printers and the quality of professional devices with a printer called the Form 1.

Formlabs is taking a different tack with the Form 1, using stereolithography to make much more precise prints using a liquid photopolymer resin.
