GLUE Studio publish Story of Books journal
GLUE Studio are proud to publish Story Of Books, a journal about the object we love above all else. Our focus is on the making of books and compelling storytelling.
The journal aim is to inspire, promote and preserve the book-making culture which involves authors, storytellers, designers, publishers and technologists.
The publication began life as a Twitter hashtag for our London Design Festival 2011 event, “Whatever is to become of books?”. On 17 September 2011 at University College London, we invited publishing experts well as social scientists to give their insights. They included:
- The Oxford International Centre for Publishing, Oxford Brookes University
- The British Library
- Blurb Books
- The Photo Book Club
- The Comics Grid: Journal of Comic Scholarship
- The Ballet Bag
They addressed the future of books as the placeholder for ideas. Fast forward six years later, despite the many technological attempts to replace hard copies, books are still around and people are still captivated by the stories written by authors.
