Paper Museums: Designing Coffee Table Art Books
Reading an art book is an aesthetic experience comparable to visiting a museum. Just as artistic works are contained and framed within a certain space, the pages of a book can be perceived as being similar to the exhibition halls because they convey a journey to the visitor/reader. Curational work transfers to iconographic publishing, while a "-graphic" discourse is woven into the book´s identity and design.
During this workshop, we will delve into two design proposals:

Imagining the Publishing Companies of Tomorrow
These are times of connectivity, networking, multidimensionality, screenification, gamification, desintermediation, hybridization, hyper-reading, and proconsumption. Our senses participate in tridimensional animation, integrated sound, virtual reality, computer-transmitted flavors, and smell synthesizers. There is no allegory for the senses but there is confluence. The senses will glimpse one another. Holographic books, augmented reality, enriched reality, and artificial intelligence make it possible to interact with readers. We are moving from text towards hypertext, in which text is linked to all text and all media. Cybertext and post-text are also on their way.
Current publishing must consider cyberculture, multimode experiences, connectionism, collaborative text creation, empathic design, personal learning environments, knowledge networks, interactive audiences, amphibious communities, virtual public epitexts, data curation services, hyperconnectivity, transmediation, transdisciplinarity, transitioning from the static to the liquid page, the ubiquity of the catalog, instant printing, and automatic authoring.
In this sense, we will explore:
This hour will include a theoretical presentation to imagine a publishing house 3.0 using a questionnaire that will be answered in teams. The exercise will revolve around the following questions:
What makes a publishing concept?
The children’s and young adult books line is experiencing obvious growth in the publishing industry. One of the biggest disadvantages of this overproduction is related to careless publishing, which is mainly reflected in using stereotypical solutions, in pigeonholing books in commercial formulas, and weak cohesion in their elements to achieve a clear, aesthetic, and intelligent publishing concept. What makes a publishing concept in children’s books especially when they bring together an array of languages? By critiquing prominent illustrated books, this workshop will delve into the use of publishing concepts to create innovative and elegant designs that deserve to be published.
