Creative Team: Divya Venkatesh

The University of the Arts London Library Services commissioned 200 hand-made limited edition book-objects for their conference “Celebrating Our Collections”, which was held to promote the variety and breadth of collections and resources held across the UAL libraries.

Each participant received a book object as a gift for attending.

Format: Concertina with Hard-bound cover

Divya designed an artists’ bookmark, to celebrate the diversity of the collections held by Library Services, as a tool for staff to use to promote the collections. Her style is delicate, robust and thorough, and was appreciated by the staff. I would like to recommend her approach, as well as her material skills, to anyone who wants a consistent, thorough and successful outcome.
