Based on 150 characters contained within a single phrase, Alexander May has transcribed each character onto linoleum engravings to create a set of unique prints for each letter and stretching this text across the bound parameters of a onestar press book. By the artist’s hand, this investigation focuses upon the economy of the printed page—the space and value of content—expanding past the limitations of a single phrase upon the page.

One day I found a tumblr called Kim Jong Il Looking At Things. I could not stop looking at Kim Jong Il looking at things. He looked so religiously detached from every thing he looked at. It was like he was not in his body while looking at bras, candy, sky, whatever. When he smiled or did not smile the expression felt the same: empty. Was the Dear Leader enlightened? He seemed honest looking at things, whatever it was, and other times he seemed delighted and bored. I don’t know why but it’s intriguing to see him looking at things ...

Afronik N’ko font is a display font supporting only the N’ko alphabet used to write Manding languages of West Africa. Souleymane Kanté created the N’Ko (ߒߞߏ – N’Ko) alphabet in 1949 to suit the sounds of the Mande languages — including Mandika, Dyula, Bambara and related languages.Neither the Latin nor the Arabic characters have enough breadth to encompass the nuances of African speech.

PublisherAna Maria Uribe1997
The component parts included here—four animated GIFs and an SWF—are not to be understood as independent works, but are to be combined in a browser to produce Ana Maria Uribe’s 1997 poem “Angeles en bandana (A Flock of Angels).” The poem arranges fifteen Garamond “T” characters in the form of an upside down triangle and animates them with out-of-sync bevels and inner glows. While this animation loops, so does a short piece of metallic-sounding audio titled “humhum.swf.” This and other Uribe anipoems are online thanks to Vispo. This title was included in Library Stack as part of the collection Open Font ...

BULLETINS OF THE SERVING LIBRARY is a composite printed/electronic publication that follows a direct line from Dot Dot Dot, the semi-annual journal founded in 2000 and published by Dexter Sinister. The “bulletins” that make up each issue are first published online as PDFs at www.servinglibrary.org over a six-month period, then assembled, printed and distributed separately in Europe and in the U.S.A. Each collection makes up a semester’s worth of loosely-themed material, with its constituent PDFs grouped together on the website.
