Making Books

The Social Life of the Book consists of a series of original texts by artists, writers, critics, designers, etc., published on a regular basis, dealing with the book, its uses and the social practices it entices. Each installment is the chapter of a book in progress, and takes the form of a 16 page saddle-stitched pamphlet. The series will be hand-bound annually, into a 192 page volume. (Englisch)

The first installment of this project is "Making Books" by Oscar Tuazon. This text recalls the origins of his taste for the book form, through an auto-biographical account of his parent's book-bindery and a further reflection on his sculptural work. (Quelle: www.aye-ayebooks.com)
