BOOK SERIES INDEX

Spector Books Bauhaus Reader

Spectorís publishing practice is settled squarely in the intersection of art, theory, and design. Based in Leipzig Germany, it explores the possibilities offered by an active exchange between all parties involved in the book production process: artists, authors, book designers, lithographers, printers and bookbinders. The book as medium is turned into a stage, a site of encounter for productive exchange. Finding innovative approaches to the medium today calls for a well considered interplay between the content, design, and materiality of a book. This reader series focuses on individual aspects of Bauhaus design.
