About The reader / Editors' notes
"The Iaspis forum on design and critical practice has comprised an exhibition, an international seminar and now a publication on investigative, speculative and critically oriented design. The reader is based on four conversations between graphic designers about various aspects of design relating to their practices. It also contains a number of interviews and other texts linked to these conversations, and a broader discussion about design and transboundary practice."--Book jacket.
