About Book

Please note that this is a Faber Members event and not a book product.

Enjoy an entertaining evening at Bloomsbury House as Toby Faber reveals the most intimate and important moments in the Faber story in this illustrated overview of Faber & Faber's history and design.
We invite our Faber Members to a special event with Geoffrey Faber's grandson, Toby Faber. As a member of the Faber family and a Non-Executive Director of the company, he is the perfect guide for a tour of Faber’s rich cultural heritage - from the origins of the company and the arrival of T. S. Eliot to the discovery of Lord of the Flies and on to the present day.
Full of stories and personal insight, this talk also traces Faber's history through its illustrations, covers and designs. It will feature artists from Rex Whistler and Barnett Freedman to Peter Blake and Damien Hirst and design concepts from the typographical excellence pioneered by Berthold Wolpe to the various ‘grids’ used by the agency Pentagram.
The talk will be accompanied by a specially curated archive display, with a selection of first editions and literary documents, by our archivist Robert Brown.

Thursday 13th October, 7pm
Bloomsbury House, 74-77 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3DA
Tickets: £7 (Faber Members: £5.95) - includes a glass of wine
