Synopsis:

Book cover creation remains a mystery to most people outside the design industry. In this lecture, Xavier will shed light into this mystifying process by laying bare his experiences during the three decades he has been working as a designer - from presentation meetings with high-profile executives at one of the largest book publishers in the world to book-gifting in a hill tribe village in Myanmar. These are stories of covers that will amuse, surprise or even shock the audience.

For anyone interested in books and visual arts, this is for you!
