X MARKS THE BÖKSHIP

X Marks The Bökship is a bookshop in London who in which work with independent publishers. The company also work with a very contemporary, graphic style - personally, a style that i love. 

The company have produced many books both themselves and from the independent publishers they work with. There work can range from serious to non-serious. Below, I have picked out two of my favourites out of many. Firstly, the one on the left is called 'Go To Ground' and i really like the orientation and composition of the text, i love how the elegant text works well against the block background and how the text floods over it. Secondly, on the right is '{Enthusiasm}'. I really enjoy the use of a candy floss pink and a black skull. the illustration of the skull is beautiful and i love the use of fabric to cover the book. 

I am mainly intrigued by the use of fabric as a covering for books - find that it is not used as much as it used to in modern bookmaking and is slowly dying. I find this interesting and will look further into fabric based books.
