Work
Writers in Residence series

Writers in Residence is a new series of publications curated by Alain de Botton and published by Visual Editions. Each issue features the story of one writer’s experience inside an organisation, the first being Geoff Dyer’s report from on board a US aircraft carrier in the Gulf, ‘Another Great Day at Sea.’ Two more editions will be publsihed this year, with a subscription offered for the set.

The series has been conceived as half-magazine, half book, making the most of the writing and photography (in this case from Magnum’s Chris Steele Perkins). We designed the book and edited the images to give a multiple layers to the storytelling.

Next up is Liaquat Ahamed and Eli Reed’s Money and Tough Love: On Tour With The IMF in July and then Douglas Coupland and Olivia Arthur’s Kitten Clone: Inside Alcatel in September.

From Philip Hoare’s review in The Guardian:
‘Nor is this a "book" in the traditional sense, more an extended catalogue essay – a sensibility enhanced by the interplay of Chris Steele-Perkins's excellent photographs scattered throughout its stiff white pages. But its large-scale format and fresh, airy design strike me as truly innovative, a highly satisfying and vivid unison of printed word, graphics and images.’
