The Book Funeral


The Book Funeral was a student project that sought to humanise the books of the Central Saint Martins library by giving them the proper send-off commonly reserved for our loved ones. The goal is to allow us to re-evaluate our treatment of books in a tongue-in-cheek manner.

Author Biography

Kenn Lam

Kenn Lam is an illustrator and designer who recently graduated from BA (Hons) Graphic Communication Design, Central Saint Martins (2018). Kenn had the privilege of being exposed to a wide array of cultures during his formative years, which played a huge role in developing his curiosity, and allows him to see narratives as a common denominator across civilisation. The essence of his work lies in framing and curating narrative structures. Kenn is currently on a year-long cultural adventure; where he’ll reside in China, Japan and Germany to work in art residencies and learn new languages.
