• Book lovers' festival in London


    Traditionalists who are dismayed by the rise of technology like e-readers and mourn the gradual decline of the print book will want to pay a visit to an upcoming festival in London, which celebrates the art of the book cover.

    More than 100 hand-picked artists were commissioned with the task of designing a book cover for their favorite book, to fit within a reasonable space that represents the size of an average book, the New York Times reports. The results will be on display at the London gallery StolenSpace from December 3 to December 19. The exhibition will allow visitors to purchase limited edition prints of some of the covers, and Penguin Books, which is cooperating with the event's organization, will also be issuing a printing of some books with 20 selected covers from the exhibition.

    "We wanted to celebrate the art of the book cover as we feel it is a dying art form. With the advent of the iPad, it’s now questionable how long the printed novel and its cover will be around. Just like the album cover, it’ll be resigned to a thumbnail in iTunes," said the gallery manager of StolenSpace.
