Specific stories and the global market.
Please join us for the TDC Book Night,where we will have Charlotte Strick (FSG), Patti Ratchford (Bloomsbury) and Paul Buckley (Penguin) talking about the variety of masters they serve in the book publishing industry. From author’s to the Barnes & Noble sales, from agents to book clubs, everyone wants a say in the defining the book’s message. And then there’s the international market…
Charlotte Strick is the Art Director of Faber & Faber, Inc. and the Trade Paperback division at Farrar, Straus and Giroux. She is an award-winning designer known for creating the jackets for books by Roberto Bolaño, Lydia Davis, and Jonathan Franzen, among many others. She is also the Art Editor and designer of The Paris Review.
Patti Ratchford worked as a magazine art director for 10 years before becoming a book jacket designer. She has worked freelance for a number of publishers in New York and two years ago was hired as art director at Bloomsbury Publishing.
Paul Buckley hides behind the Napoleanic title of Vice President Executive Creative Director, where he overesees the covers and jackets for 12 diverse imprints within Penguin. His design consists of pretty much centering the font Gotham on top of some nice image that he either found or art directed… so don’t expect him to actually discuss typography at this Type Directors Club event.
