Cover Girls - an evening of book design with Sarah and Schooling

They say not to judge a book by its cover, but for designers Alison Schooling and Sarah Tang of Sarah and Schooling–they are acutely aware of first impressions from the book shelve. If you've picked up a recent work of literature written by a Singaporean and published by a Singapore-based press, you have a very good chance of picking up a book designed by them. They'll be sharing how designing literary books require four different viewpoints (the author, publisher, designer and you, the reader).
