Publications document works of art, record exhibitions, generate critical discourse and disseminate art and ideas worldwide. They can also be beautiful objects in their own right. This step by step session led by Francesca Vinter and Emma Woodiwiss is a guide to every aspect of book publication from commissioning designers and authors to the world of distribution. Sessions will cover:

• The place of the book
• Planning a publication: processes and considerations
• Image copyright
• Production and Print
• Logistics of book sales and distribution

10am – 5pm
Lunch and refreshments provided
