Irma Boom: Book Builder

I interviewed Dutch graphic designer Irma Boom for Designers and Books. Have a look here! This is a book she created for Chanel—the entirely white, embossed book is presented in a black box. No ink or binding boards to get in the way, just a mysterious and very tactile evocation of the world of Coco Chanel. “Boom: A Conversation with Irma Boom & Debbie Millman,” will take place on Wednesday, January 29, from 6:30–8:30 PM at Parsons The New School for Design, New York. The event is presented by AIGA/NY and Designers & Books and will be followed by a book signing for Irma Boom: The Architecture of the Book and a reception. For details, click here.
