Through a series of in-depth historical case studies and assignments that progressively build in complexity, the book serves as a practical guide ...

THIRD REPORT Two of the protagonists of the final iteration of the exhibition project The Gutenberg Galaxy at Blaker were makers of books who have had a profound influence on the archival practice of Guttorm Guttormsgaard. They were also experts in the destruction of books. A friend of Asger Jorn (1914– 1973) once noted how the Danish artist “presented a danger to any book collection” as he used to tear out pages from books belonging to others in order to create his own. Jorn’s compatriot Rudolf Broby-Johansen (1900–1987) was also a notorious book slaughterer, leaving behind a trail of books full ...

An extended reflection on the work of designer Karel Martens, originally given at Kunstinstituut Melly in Rotterdam. “A keynote talk on Karel, I chose to explore how his work—sometimes framed as an “independent” practice—is instead a case study in collaboration at multiple scales: with his family, students, and other designers; with commissioners and existing contexts; and even with paper, ink, and printing materials themselves. The talk also delved into the entangling of my professional path over the past decade in supporting and presenting his work. It’s an homage to a truly remarkable human being, from whom I learn every day.”

In Design by Accident, Alexandra Midal declares the autonomy of design, in and on its own terms. This meticulously researched work proposes not only a counterhistory but a new historiography of design, shedding light on overlooked historical landmarks and figures while reevaluating the legacies of design’s established luminaries from the nineteenth century to the present. Midal rejects both linear narratives of progress and the long-held perception of design as a footnote to the histories of fine art and architecture. By weaving critical analysis of the canon of design history and theory together, with special attention to the writings of designers ...

Devised and written by David Reinfurt, compiled and presented by Dan Fox, and produced in the context of ‘ALWAYS LIFT INKING ROLLERS WHEN PRESS IS NOT IN OPERATION. IF ROLLERS ARE LEFT TURNING ON THE DRUM THE INK WILL DRY FASTER AND THE ROLLERS WILL BE SUBJECT TO NEEDLESS WEAR’ organized by Will Holder at The Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada.  “Things in their alleged places. Things where they think they should be, where they prefer to be. All of the things, just where they are. Things with things of their own. Things obeying no rules, following no orders, filling no ...

I Read Where I Am contains visionary texts about the future of reading and the status of the word. We read anytime and anywhere. We read of screens, we read out on the streets, we read in the office but less and less we read a book at home on the couch. We are, or are becoming, a different type of reader. How will we grapple with compressed narratives and the fluid bombardment of text? What are the dialectics between image and word? How will our information machines generate new reading cultures? Can reading become a live, mobile social experience? To ...

– Waiter! I don’t like cheese with holes! – Don’t worry, Sir. Just eat the cheese and leave the holes at the side of the plate. American minimalist artist Carl Andre (b. 1935) has not publicly expressed his feelings about Emmental, but he did once make this statement: ‘A thing is a hole in the thing it is not’. It’s a dictum that seems to have as much to say about the nature of holes as it does about the nature of things. In other words, doesn’t the converse logic apply: If a thing is a hole, then surely a hole is also a ...

To celebrate the ebook Ming Romantic: Collected and Bound, 2nd Edition, authors Caspar Lam and YuJune Park (Synoptic Office) are in conversation with contributor Chris Wu (Wkshps) about the origins of the Ming Romantic typeface, their shared practices across the field of graphic design, and their wider research into Chinese typography.

Ming Romantic: Collected and Bound, 2nd Edition folds together reproductions of historical documents with contemporary texts to examine how Chinese typography can evolve through the use of digital tools and manipulation of form. The ebook also illustrates the design process of Ming Romantic, a display face reinterpreting a style of printed type originating in China’s Song and Ming dynasties. The typeface imagines how the character set could look when divorced from the effects of the brush. Ming Romantic comprises three sections: “Possibilities: Typographic Speciation”; “Translations—Putting It Together: Conversations about Language & Form, Ming Romantic, and It’s Our Ming”; and “Myths: Chinese ...
