How to Wear A Book at Printed Matter Virtual | Friday 26 February, 2pm GMT

Please join us at 2pm GMT for our launch event ‘How to Wear a Book’, a special broadcast on our site at the Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair  to celebrate the new edition Wear Books 
furoshiki is a piece of cotton fabric used in Japan since the 17th century (its name refers to the art of tying). A furoshiki fabric square is used to wrap anything and everything: watermelon, saké, shoes.. and of course books.. Furoshikis are a good way to carry everyday objects, recycle fabric and replace plastic.  
Wear Books is a new edition for travelling books or moving readers, handmade in France by Claire Mouton and Marie-Sophie Robert. Using books from their personal libraries exposed with a little bit of sun, Claire and Marie-Sophie have created an edition of cyanotype furoshikis, each one unique. 
Each fabric square comes with its own tying suggestions for your portable library, such as an elegant 'la poche de Marguerite' handbag or a comfy 'Kerouac Backpack'. In this short film the designers show you the possibilities of ‘how to wear a book’. 
The event will be broadcast from our events page and on our YouTube channel
