Obviously, design and architecture represent a huge topic of interest here at Perimeter. They’re are also two fields that attract some of the finest in book design and publishing sensibilities the world over. For today’s post, we’ve hand-selected a suite of six lovely publications spanning various disciplines, continents and practitioners, from Tokyo architectural duo SANAA to brilliant Parisian designer and typographer Fanette Melier.

Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa: SANAA HOUSES

This beautiful collection of housing projects by SANAA (aka Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa) from their major exhibition at MUSAC in Spain offers a fascinating insight into the duo’s lovely mergence of unassuming aesthetics and complex, lateral ideas. Beautifully published by Actar (Barcelona).

Karel Martens – printed matterdrukwerk

An incredible survey of the printed work of master Dutch designer, typographer and educator Karel Martens, who recently completed a brief residency and exhibition at Monash University.  Featuring French-folded pages and various gatefolds, the stunning printed matter is a treat on the senses. Arrives courtesy of the brilliant Hyphen Press (London).

CLIP STAMP FOLD: The Radical Architecture of Little Magazines

As its title suggests, CLIP STAMP FOLD: The Radical Architecture of Little Magazines 196X to 197X is a vast chronicle of the little, independent architectural magazine phenomenon that exploded in the 60s and 70s. At nearly 700 pages and featuring facsimiles of around 70 magazines, this is a mind-boggling underground compendium. Thanks to Spanish publishers Actar.
