Lili Phillips

Nice to meet you, I’m Lili. I am an attentive thinker, tactile explorer and curious designer, whose work is bound by a critical awareness of content.

Employing courage and nobility, I deliver tangible results—from printed matter to community building.

Books About Books

Books About Books is a collection of experimental publications, designed in response to my interviews with women concerned with book arts. Each conversation determines the concept and the look of the book.

My discussion with Rahel Zoller has been transcribed and translated into a visual orchestration. Influenced by the term ‘dog-earing’, the book reconstructs the banal act of reading. The text is only fully legible and intelligible when the reader folds the page.
