Author(s): Maryam Fanni; Matilda Flodmark; Sara Kaaman

design + technology

'Natural Enemies of Books' is a response to the groundbreaking 1937 publication 'Bookmaking on the Distaff Side', which brought together contributions by women printers, illustrators, authors, printers, typographers, and typesetters, highlighting the print industry’s inequalities and proposing a takeover of the history of the book. Edited by feminist graphic design collective MMS (Maryam Fanni, Matilda Flodmark, and Sara Kaaman), 'Natural Enemies of Books' includes newly commissioned essays and poems by Kathleen Walkup, Ida Börjel, Jess Baines, Ulla Wikander and conversations with former typesetters Inger Humlesjö, Ingegärd Waaranperä, Gail Cartmail and Megan Downey, as well as reprints of the original book and other publications.
