Bibliophile Brief
Kingston University

Mireille teamed up with her father Hans Burkhardt from the Swiss bookbinder BUBU this week in setting a live brief to Kingston University's third year graphic design students. The challenge — to reinvent the book with one eye on the future — was introduced to the students with a nod to the past… an unearthed film of the production process at BUBU shot by Mireille's grandfather in 1951.

The students' ideas will be judged later in February by Mireille, Hans, Kieran and the Kingston graphic design course director Andy Haslam with the best going into production as BUBU's annual New Year Book for 2015.
