Type Tuesday: Book Night!

St Bride Foundation, Tuesday 28 June 2022 in the Bridewell Hall 7-9.30pm

Eye’s first ‘Book night!’ brings together designers, art directors, authors, artists and readers with gripping presentations by Giles Dunn, Sonya Dyakova, Hugh Miller and Jim Sutherland, and a panel in which our speakers (plus special

surprise guests), talk about their favourite books. There will be a bar and a chance to buy our latest issue – Eye 103 – along with some bargain back issues of Eye.

Art director Giles Dunn will talk about on the design process and visual strategies behind ERR (below), a photobook by cult musician David Sylvian (see also ‘Time stretched further out’ in Eye 103). Dunn’s studio Punkt specialises in meticulously designed and produced books that feature the work of artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Richard Prince and KAWS.

Hugh Miller is a London based designer and creative director, known as @neue_miller on Instagram. He will be talking about his design and art direction for Gilles Peterson’s Lockdown FM (see ‘Cool lists for dark days’ in Eye 102), a remarkable collaboration (with Straight No Chaser founder Paul Bradshaw and others) that responded to the early days of the pandemic. Hugh will show early sketches and other insights into the process behind this complex publication.

Graphic designer Jim Sutherland will be talking specifically about his ongoing collaboration with artist Marcus Lyon in the ‘Human Atlas’ project, which has so far focused on people in Brazil, Germany, Detroit and Silicon Valley, combining exemplary book production with photography, DNA analysis, geography and music – iDetroit involved Techno pioneer Derrick May and Brian Eno. See Simon Esterson’s profile of Jim Sutherland in Eye 101.

Sonya Dyakova is an art director whose Atelier Dyakova works with a range of international clients, including architecture practices, fashion brands, artists and art galleries. She has designed books for Fondation Cartier, Victoria Miro, Stephen Friedman Gallery and the Judd Foundation. Sonya will talk about some recent publications, including books for artists Paula Rego, Kudzanai-Violet Hwami and Donald Judd.

Book designer David Pearson co-hosts along with Eye editor John Walters

Established in 1891 with a clear social and cultural purpose, St Bride Foundation is one of London’s hidden gems.

Housed in a beautiful Grade II listed Victorian building, St Bride Foundation was originally set up to serve the burgeoning print and publishing trade of nearby Fleet Street, and is now finding a new contemporary audience of designers, printmakers and typographers who come to enjoy a regular programme of design events and workshops.

Many thousands of books, printing-related periodicals and physical objects are at the heart of St Bride Library. Volumes on the history of printing, typography, newspaper design and paper-making jostle for space alongside one of the world’s largest and most significant collections of type specimens. The printed, written, carved and cast word may be found at St Bride in its myriad forms. Architectural lettering and examples of applied typography in many media, together with substantial collections of steel punches and casting matrices for metal types are also held in this eclectic collection. The Reading Room is open to visitors twice a month and on other days by appointment. Although we operate on a cost-neutral basis, it is necessary to charge for some of our services. Details are available by emailing the library team at

St Bride retains many of its original features, including the baths, laundry, printing rooms and library. As part of the Foundation’s original mission to provide for the community, many of the building’s unique and characterful spaces are available to hire whether for meetings, weddings or classes.

St Bride also houses the popular Bridewell Theatre, and Bridewell Bar (once the laundry), and hosts a year-round programme of plays, comedy, music and exhibitions.

With some 65,000 visitors a year St Bride Foundation is a major London hub for the creative arts in London. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
