B.Books publishes bilingual art & design books. The first publication, Word.Book 1, Graphic Design Terms is due to be published in 2013. The bilingual English–French glossary is aimed at offering graphic designers and design students working internationally with the translation of specialist terms necessary to carry out their everyday work.
With the increasing international exchange and mobility of creative workers and students, unlike standard dictionaries, B.Books publications respond to the need of translating rapidly evolving vocabulary. The terms are offered in both languages, with definitions, illustrations and references to related terms, where necessary.
Compiled through using a wide variety of sources, both in print and online, Word.Books are working tools that evolve with their sector. Online forums will act as a digital extension of each publication thereby offering users the possibility to suggest and discuss terminology, definitions and also to add illustrations to complement their Word.Book.
