In this conversation, two friends share their experience collaborating remotely for the first time in the design of a book that commemorates the reopening of Mingei International Museum. Jorge Brozon, based in Mexico City and Patricia Cué in San Diego, will share their knowledge and experience in the field of design for art publications and discuss the design of the art book as a product and the value of print in the realm of culture. They will also talk about the opportunities that printing and production processes offer for book design.
