Ginsberg’s America (Berkeley, 1956), 2009

This book is a visual rendition of Allen Ginsberg’s delivery of his poem America at Berkeley in 1956. The poem—Ginsberg’s voice—is transcribed and typeset in Times Bold, while the audience’s laughter and comments is painted in Indian ink straight on the silkscreen film.

90º - Typography Book 

Handmade book by Iwona Przybyla features typographic alphabet with letters presented in 3D using thread and stitching:

Kąt 90 stopni (90 degrees) is a book presenting a font style bearing the same name, designed in such a way that each of its letters can be displayed in a three-dimensional space. The letters are made of a string threaded through two sheets of paper perpendicular to each other. All twenty-six letters of the English alphabet have been created using this font style and put together to create this one-off book design.

Artist Kent Rogowski’s Everything I Wish I Could Be is an exploration of language, emotions and the desire to change and improve. Self help books run the gamet, from relationships to death and every topic in between. Rogowski’s photographs these tomes arranged by theme, creating an image of emotions and lives lived through title pages and spines.

In the artist’s own words, “I had been thinking about how people deal with moments of pain and change in their lives and knew that I wanted to explore this in my work.  I started collecting self help books and realized that there was literally a book for every moment in life: from relationship advice to dealing with a midlife crisis. I liked the idea that I could create images that would represent individual moments in life using the books that were written to soothe and help with those moments.”

The Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope - illustrated by Mireille Fauchon.
As with its books to date, design is paramount but, for this release, it’s the bespoke typeface that stands out.

Poemotion is an interactive book-object. The abstract graphical patterns in this small volume are set in motion as soon as you move the attached special foil across them: moiré effects allow complex forms to develop, set circles in motion and make graphical patterns vibrate. With this book the viewer can discover how, as if by magic, figures and forms are created out of optical overlays, set in motion and then disappear again. In the era of digitalization this book shows that interactivity is also possible in the format of the analogous, bound book.

The lettering was actually created by making tiny pinpricks through heavy cardstock.
