Designers against Aids: The Book

Ninette Murk founded Beauty Without Irony in 2001 and in 2005 she started Designers against AIDS as a 

reaction to the death of her assistant Peter Verhelst and to combat the growing number of HIV cases

especially among young people. The rest, as they say, is herstory. This month Ludion will publish

'Designers against Aids: The First Decade', beautifully designed by the team at Base Design in Brussels

( The book is edited by Ninette Murk & Michael James O'Brien with essays

by Dr Peter Piot, Alain de Botton & Ninette Murk & with contributions by more than 100 artists

including Yoko Ono, Karim Rashid, Tokio Hotel, Erwin Olaf, Ike Ude, Hannelore Knuts, Veruschka &
