We would like to share this cool project that is currently live for support. Introducing Volume, the first publishing platform for high-quality illustrated books for visual creatives with also lovers of print. In this issue, we are taking a close and personal at the work of Anthony Burrill, designer and letterpress guru. Selecting from his private collection of printed matter, he gathered and curated throughout his career. This is a celebration of the pieces of paper that surround our everyday lives, offering a whimsical and almost philosophical perspective on how we view printed artifacts. Check it out!
In their words
Volume is a start-up enterprise powered by independent publisher Thames & Hudson. The international art publisher holds access to decades of editorial and design insight, production and printing expertise, and unparalleled distribution to the global book trade. The team is eager to pass its knowledge onto a new generation of creative talents and increasingly print-savvy audiences with Volume.
Publishing is about passion, and publishers still have a vital role in helping creators find their audiences.”
Volume will launch with the title Look & See, by graphic designer and letterpress guru, Anthony Burrill. As one of the most beloved creators in the UK’s lively craft printing scene, Burrill is known for his upbeat typographic posters. Look & See reflects as such, featuring Bodoniana binding and a cover silkscreened in three colors. And through Volume, Burrill will offer much more than just high-quality books to his project backers, including a specially designed print, a signed edition, a numbered limited edition in a clamshell box, and even the chance to spend a day with Burrill at his studio. Future projects include collaborations with John Maeda and Takenobu Igarashi, a reissue of a bible of Brutalism, a collection of “architectural fictions,” and a limited edition on one of videogaming’s iconic releases. “We truly hope that the new models offered by Volume will usher in a wonderful new era for books on the visual arts,” say Wall and Dietrich.
