Lifetime Speakers Bureau presents: The Look of the Book

February 22nd @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This captivating visual exploration of the book cover sheds light on the creative genius sitting on our shelves As readers, we’re all guilty of judging a book by its cover. The cover is the outward face of the text–done right, a cover can become iconic, but done wrong, it can definitely send the wrong message. The Look of the Book draws on in-depth interviews, archival research, and recent scholarship in media studies to provide a comprehensive exploration of the meaning, history, value, mechanics and future of the book cover. David Alworth, Harvard Humanities professor, will help us to look deeper at the intersection of culture and commerce as it enlarges our notions of what a book cover can and should be.
