As a cutting-edge visual publishing house, Gestalten is especially pleased to present the international group show Fully Booked: Ink on Paper. This exhibition showcases more than 200 innovative books and other print products at the vanguard of a new era for printed publications—one that is likely to be the most exciting in their entire history.
From personal projects with the smallest print runs to premium artist books or brand publications, the selection of work presented in Fully Booked: Ink on Paper celebrates the tactile experience. Featuring innovative printing and binding techniques as well as radical editorial and design concepts, this work explores the distinctiveness of design, materials, workmanship, and production methods—and pushes their limits.
To give visitors an insightful overview of print’s lasting impact in our largely digital age, the show is structured into five sections that each represent a key role that print plays today: The Storyteller, The Showmaster, The Teacher, The Businessman, and The Collector.
Featured designers and design studios include Bruketa & Zinic, Coralie Bickford-Smith, Daniel Eatock, David Pearson, Double Standards, Erik Kessels, Heimann und Schwantes, Herburg Weiland, Isaac Tobin, Isabelle Vaverka, Jim Tierney, Johanna Fuchs, John Gall, Joost Grootens, Jung & Wenig, L2M3, Leftloft, Made Thought, Nicholas Felton, onestar press, Peter Mendelsund, Prill Vieceli Cremers, Ritator, Sam Ita, Stefan Sagmeister, Studio Laucke Siebein, Three Star Books, Visual Editions, and Zumtobel.
To coincide with the show, Gestalten is releasing the eponymous book Fully Booked: Ink on Paper: Design and Concepts for New Publications that presents an even wider selection of groundbreaking books and other printed products. Its stunning range of visual examples is put into context by texts from Andrew Losowsky, books editor at The Huffington Post.
