Technologist, futurist, author, and photographer Kevin Kelly discusses traveling during the golden age of global exploration. We cover how photography has changed over the years, his decades cavorting through Asia in the 1970s and 80s, and how he self-produced (eventually getting it published by Taschen!) his Asia Grace book in the 90s.
Designer and author Frank Chimero discusses the process behind his seminal design book, "The Shape of Design." We dig into the normalization of paying creative people to make things via crowd funding and patronage platforms, and why there's never been a better time to make books.
Researcher and author Jan Chipchase has a new book — "The Field Study Handbook." We discuss how he came to produce this 500+ page magnum opus — a distillation of his life's work — and why he is self publishing.
