The book is a catalogue of an exhibition of British books to be held in Armenia in June 2012 at the 'Armenian Society for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries'. This is an event arranged with the Armenian Ministry of Culture as part of the UNESCO: 'Yerevan, International Book Capital 2012' & the Armenian 2012 celebrations to mark the 500th anniversary of the first printed book in the Armenian language. The catalogue describes all the books in the exhibition, with a photograph of each and gives details of the designers, artists, illustrators (short biographies) of the selected books with an introduction by Paul Middleton (with a translation into Armenian). The books have been selected as examples of innovative books produced in the UK (and unlikely to be seen in Armenia), grouped into genres: Artist and Private Press Books; Art & Design Books; Children's Books; Publishers' Books; Graphic Novels & Comic books. The exhibition will also be shown at the University of Northampton (School of the Arts) in October/November 2012.
