Attention all design-book lovers

Lovers of well-designed books about design (hardly an underserved market already) are set to be truly spoiled with the launch of new publishing company Fiell this month.

Fiell founders Charlotte and Peter Fiell are well-known in the design publishing world, having been plying their trade at publisher Taschen, and authoring titles such as 1000 Chairs and Industrial Design A-Z.

Their new Fiell enterprise launches this month at the London Book Fair (19-21 April) and on 6 May will publish a slew of design titles.

Notable among these are The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts, by Barnbrook Studio, and Charlotte and Peter Fiell’s own Plastics Dreams.

But current Design Week faves are the swinging pages of Custom Lettering of the 60s and 70s, and Lifestyle Illustration of the 60s. Groovy.
