Conversations on Book Design & Publishing: Tools

attachment file

8th November, Thursday, Riga will be hosting the fourth conference on book design and publishing. This time the conference will focus on various tools book publishers, sellers, designers and artists use in their day-to-day work.

Publishers, booksellers, designers and illustrators use a myriad of apps for daily tasks sometimes without paying much attention them. These are the tools that shape our daily routines. Some of them we see on our screens, while others are hiding in clouds. In conversations with our guests, we will explore the places where digital tools merge with the analogue world.
