From 11 January to 8 February 2019, the Rietveld & Sandberg Library presents an exhibition of Xavier Fernandez Fuentes’ books; books he made and books he collected.
Xavier was an alumnus from the Graphic Design department (class of 2008) and ran the academy’s bookbinding workshop from 2008 until his passing in 2017. Xavi’s Books shows the complete output of Xavier’s publishing imprint, Centerfold Editions, as well as a selection from his extensive personal book collection.
He was passionate about books on a wide range of topics, from photography and art to cats and ’80s cars. Some titles will be donated to the collection of the Rietveld & Sandberg Library, while others will be for sale during the final day of the exhibition. All proceeds will go to the Ingeborg Douwes Centrum, an organisation providing psychological care to cancer patients.
