What is the journey of a book before and after it makes it to the shelf? Associate Publisher of Ethos Books, Ng Kah Gay will talk about reading, selection, editing, layout, and design, and the post-production processes of marketing, distribution and sales. He will be joined by Jacintha Yap, book-cover designer of  "This is What Inequality Looks Like" by Teo You Yenn, in a dialogue on the intersections between text and visual image. 

KG is associate publisher at Ethos Books. He believes in the transformative effect of stories on perception and ways of being, and is fascinated by the staying power of books and their adaptability to emerging contexts and formats.

Jacintha Yap (b. 1993) is a freelance graphic designer living her days in between sleep and wake. She chases sleep and is interested in exploring the spiritual dimensions and poetic associations behind it. Currently, she is working with her partner on Sandglass, an Android nap alarm mobile application, available in the Google Play store.
