Dave Eggers of McSweeney’s talks about Oddi Printing collaboration in new book

The U.S. publishing company Chronicle Books recently released a book celebrating “the 11th or 12th anniversary” of the American publishing house, McSweeney’s. The book entitled Art of McSweeney’s showcases the award winning art work and book design from a number of the publisher’s different activities.

The book provides insight into McSweeney’s creative process and offers practical solutions to often very demanding designs. This book offers designers, publishers, authors and book enthusiasts thought provoking ideas where design and production comes together to make very interesting and unusual books.

In the book, Dave Eggers, the Founder and Editor of McSweeney’s, tells the story about how coincidence led him to a printer based in Reykjavik, Iceland called Oddi Printing “who often played an important role in design decisions based on materials and processes in printing and binding.”

Marteinn Jonasson, Head of Oddi’s New York office commented, “Oddi Printing is particularly proud to have been a part of McSweeney’s history. Our collaboration with them is a good example of how it is possible to do extraordinary things with content, design and production in order to create great advantages for the reader.”

Samples of McSweeney’s books as well as other interesting printing and binding work can be found on www.oddi.com
