ROMA Publications #1–425 at Sitterwerk, St. Gallen
A catalogue of all the material published up until 2022 by ROMA Publications, founded in Amsterdam in 1998 by Roger Willems, Mark Manders, and Marc Nagtzaam.
The volumes was produced to accompany the exhibition One can build a table for 425 books at Sitterwerk and contains a selection of photographs made between 2001 and 2021 by fellow designer and studio mate Hans Gremmen.
As Roland Früh, head of the art library at Sitterwerk, suggests in the preface: "None of the 425 books listed here stand out because they want to; they’re not shining with metallic ink, they’re not oversized, not heavy or loud or shrill. But they radiate something that makes them special."
Editing, design and cover by Roger Willems
