Promoted by SBLU spazioalbello, the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Biblioteca Nazionale Braidense, the Mediateca Santa Teresa and the AIAP Italian (Association of visual communication design) with the sponsorship of Mibact, the Municipality of Milan and ADI Association for industrial design, OBJECT BOOK is now in its fourth edition.
The Festival, which received an Honorable Mention in the 2018 Golden Compass last June, is unique in that it compares the world of “art and the world of design through the book as an object. The next edition, the result of a selection of over 250 books received from all over the world (India, Korea, Colombia, among others), proposes books which tell a story through a narrative that is not always made explicit in words.
On display will be about 200 volumes, including artist’s books and design books. Prestigious artists, such as Emilio Isgrò, Ugo La Pietra and William Xerra or designers such as Irma Boom and Ginette Caron, guarantee the unquestionable quality of the exhibition.
