Vitsœ is delighted to host ‘The Modernist Book Fair’, a two-day event and an evening of talks featuring some of the best independent publishers in the field of modernist and brutalist architecture, curated by our friends from ‘the modernist’, a quarterly magazine dedicated to modernist architecture and design.
Come and browse or buy books, magazines, maps, zines and more – all celebrating the legacy and diversity of modernism – at Vitsœ’s Marylebone Lane shop on Friday and Saturday 22-23 September. A special panel-discussion will also take place on Friday evening from 6:30pm, moderated by Eddy Rhead, co-founder of ‘the modernist’ magazine. The panel will share their insights and experiences on publishing about modernist architecture (the evening event is ticketed via the-modernist.org). This is a unique opportunity to discover and support the work of independent publishers who are passionate about modernist architecture and design. Whether you are a fan of Bauhaus, brutalism, or anything in between, you will find something to inspire and delight. Participants include Blue Crow Maps, publisher of architectural maps; photographer Martin Dust, publisher of Brutal Yorkshire; Simon Phipps, photographer with books including Brutal North, Brutal London and Concrete Poetry; designer and author Stefi Orazi of Modernist Estates and the popular Perambulations series; The Twentieth Century Society campaigners for outstanding modernist architecture, and UHM Zines who feature a variety of Brutalist architecture photographers.
