Bookmarking Book Arts - Jan Tschichold

Bookmarking Book Arts - Jan Tschichold | Books On Books | Scoop.it
When Tschichold wrote Die Neue Typographie he set forth rules for standardization of practices relating to modern type usage. He condemned all typefaces except for sans-serif types, advocated standardized sizes of paper and set forth guidelines for establishing a typographic hierarchy when using type in design. While the text still has many relative uses today, Tschichold eventually returned to a classicist theory in which centered designs and roman typefaces were favored for blocks of copy.
Robert Bolick's insight:

These drawings for the Sabon typeface represent that return to old-style serif to which the excerpt above refers. Just as interesting are Tschichold's clients' business imperatives that drove the design of Sabon as much as the theory. The story is recounted in Alexander Lawson's "Anatomy of a Typeface".

Bookmarking Book Art - Tim Ely

Bookmarking Book Art - Tim Ely | Books On Books | Scoop.it

"I’ve been very, very happy lately to be having wonderful correspondence, and conversations in person, with several really talented binders. One of them, Tim Ely, is a binder who is far more than a binder." - Abby Schoolman, American-Bound.com

Robert Bolick's insight:

American, born 1949.


From his site: "Artist Timothy C. Ely makes lavishly painted and drawn unique manuscript books, limited edition prints, and is the developer of 21st century professional bookbinding tools and equipment."


Above is the cover and spine detail of The Well, 2010, which measures 15 x 10 inches. This lapis-lazuli-like work resides in a private collection somewhere in Berkeley, California.


Published by Chronicle Books in 1995, "Flight into Egypt: Binding the Book" is a more readily accessible example of Ely's art.

Bookmarking Book Art - Linda Toigo

Bookmarking Book Art - Linda Toigo | Books On Books | Scoop.it
"I am a London-based paper artist and graphic designer with a specific interest in book alteration.
My destructive act, performed with an arsenal of scalpel blades, fire, wire and paints, alters existing visual and written material, extracting it from its original context and endowing it with new meanings.My blades are also able to evoke stories from flat sheets of coloured cardboard, mounted together in experimental book structures that offer magical narratives inspired by fairy tales and gothic novels."
Robert Bolick's insight:

The picture above comes from Linda Toigo's interactive edition of

Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". The interactive elements consist of opening envelopes, ripping pages, constructing illustrations from jigsaw pieces, turning and returning pages facing reflective surfaces, but just as engaging -- perhaps more so -- is the unified way in which layout, texture, page size, illustration and half-tones achieve a gothic atmosphere. Experience it here online: https://www.vimeo.com/19652646


Going to and fro between her blog, website portfolio and Vimeo site is like viewing a solo exhibition in the artist's company. When you have finished viewing this two-minute video, treat yourself to Toigo's book art animation. I especially enjoyed the "hide and seek" effect of the three-level accordion and tunnel book work "Annar and the Moose".  But what is worth repeated viewing is "Medieval and Modern History (Suggestions for Further Study for Jack Hroswith)", in which the artist uses lit matches, a glass surface and her fingers to burn, excavate and sculpt the pages of a used history textbook. 

https://vimeo.com/63814897


Jack Hroswith is the owner's name inscribed on the opening endpaper, which is a haunting piece of random history reflected in the artist's creative process:


"... I gave chance a prominent role: with the same morbid fascination that inspired the fire officer in Fahrenheit 451, I let fire burn its way on the pages, and I observed the devastation of words, maps and illustrations.


At the same time, however, I kept a certain level of control on the destructive process developing a quick reaction to avoid the complete dissolution of the book: for every page I waited for the fire to reach a chosen sentence or a specific image before pushing the paper down onto a glass surface with my fingertips."


In her blog (https://lindatoigo.wordpress.com/), Toigo notes the influence of Gustav Metzger's Autodestructive Art manifesto from the 60s, John Latham's burning "Skoob Tower" and sequences from Truffaut's Fahrenheit 451.  Toigo seems to have no "anxiety of influence". While her works echo those of contemporaries and twentieth century book artists, they do so in their own voice.

"Atlas 004 - Vertical Space Order", 2015Books, microchips, copper wire74 4/5 × 14 1/5 × 16 1/10 in190 × 36 × 41 cm

Robert Bolick's insight:

At the base of this sculpture is "The Times Concise Atlas of the World", and at its top, "The Observer's Book of Manned Space Flight (No. 48)". While these two elements of the piece resonate with its rocket-like thrust, metallic gantry-like frame and micro-chip nodes, as does the textbook on projective geometry (Euclidean geometry describes shapes "as they are" while projective geometry describes them "as they appear"), it is hard to suss what Walter Starkie's picaresque travelogue about life with the Roma ("Raggle Taggle") or Cyril Connolly and Jerome Zerbe's picture book on 18th century French "pavillons" or Yehiel Dinur's autobiographical novel of his post-holocaust life in Israel (Ka-Tzetnik 135633, "House of Love") have to do with the rest of it.

 

Art composed of found elements is like that, I suppose. Just enough connectedness to suggest order and intentionality, just enough disconnectedness to suggest disorder and randomness. Ulian works in London, and the books are clearly used books, ones I've stocked on Oxfam's shelves in another life.

 

His other works, incorporating electronic parts soldered together in "microchip synapses" and "technological mandalas", however, imply other tensions -- between technology and the human, the digital and the spiritual.  Or in the case of his "Contrived Objects" (wooden tennis rackets, microchips and copper wire), between the physical and the artificially cerebral.

 

Ulian's more recent work has changed from that of 2010-11 ("A fragile forest" and "From zero to one").  Even though some of the themes, materials and techniques are the same, the more recent works (those noted above) are more focused, self-contained, polished, static and perhaps decorative. I suspect there may be another cycle and even more engaging art coming from this artist.

Bookmarking Book Art - American Stone Books | Books On Books | Scoop.it

All books were photographed on a 1" grid for scale.

...  In this article, I will discuss American stone books and my attempt to understand this unique form of folk art.

Carved stone books are a fascinating and unusual form of American folk art, which, loosely defined, is traditional artistic expression lavished on common utilitarian objects. Unlike many of the objects now considered folk art, stone books were not intended for any significant practical purpose other than as objects of remembrance." -- Ian Berke, "Carved in Stone: American Stone Books", Maine Antique Digest, April 2015

Robert Bolick's insight:

Thanks to Mindy Dubansky, head of the Sherman Fairchild Center for Book Conservation at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, for the notice.

"Dear Reader of The János Book,
In May of 2014 I received a letter in the mail.

From János.

Years after he passed away.
Years after I finished the book you read, which tells of him, and his decision to reveal our family’s identity despite decades of secrecy.

The letter is a prologue. The letter is an epilogue.
The letter is a turning point within a work believed to be complete.

The letter, and its arrival, is too unbelievable to not share it with you, so that you may decide for yourself.

And so, I bring to you a woven book, a true story...The János Letter."

Robert Bolick's insight:

First, after more than a decade of working on interviews with her great uncle János, Alex Appella issued "The János Book" as a limited edition artist's book in 2006.  Then, in 2012, there was the trade edition "Entonces el libro". Then, in May 2014, the artist received a letter in the mail. Written in 1983. From János, who had passed away in 2003.

 

Now comes "The János Letter", created of woven pages, collage and text capturing the letter's arrival and its content. Appella has designed 

"The János Letter" to mesh with the trade edition of "The János Book" and "Entonces el libro".  A virtual experience of the works is available at http://www.transientbooks.com/janos/index.swf. ;

Literal interpretations of the environment, representations of mapping as well as more abstract concepts about our individual finite existence and our relationship with home find their way into my pieces. Tradition, both familial and cultural, lie at the heart of my artistic practice and in many instances I am considering memory and knowledge and how this is transferred across generations.

Bookmarking Book Art - Lacuna | Books On Books | Scoop.it
Lacuna is a collaboration between the Bay Area Book Festival and the Flux Foundation to create a monumental, participatory art installation for the inaugural Bay Area Book Festival to be held in downtown Berkeley, June 5-7, 2015. Constructed from 50,000 books donated by the Internet Archive, Lacuna will sit in MLK Civic Center Park for the duration of the festival weekend, creating a reflective space that offers contrast to—and respite from—the busy energy of the festival. Admission to Lacuna is 100% free. 
Robert Bolick's insight:

"Lacuna represents a type of library where the process of selecting and taking out a book shifts and re-shapes the very structure in which those books are contained."  

 

An architectural beauty, but let's hope no one checks out "The Keystone Cops".

Karen Hanmer’s work weds the ancient act of book binding with the high-tech function of the computer. Her pieces often take the forms of games or puzzles, however, and many include witty text. Hanmer exhibits internationally, and her work has won numerous awards. Her work is included in collections at The Getty Museum, the Library of Congress, Yale University and Graceland. Hanmer is also a winner of the Jury Prize for Binding in the 2009 Helen Warren DeGolyer American Bookbinding Competition.
Robert Bolick's insight:

Today, 28 March 2015, Karen Hanmer gives a talk the Racine Public Library in Wisconsin about the flag book, a format invented by Hedi Kyle. Coincidentally, today is the deadline for submissions to 23 Sandy Gallery's juried exhibition "Hello Hedi".


"23 Sandy hosts two juried exhibitions each year. Our first for 2015 will be titled HELLO HEDI. For this exciting exhibition we are seeking book art inspired by the myriad structures invented by Hedi Kyle. A force in our field, Hedi has invented structures such as the flag book, blizzard book, fishbone fold, Wunderkabinets, pivoting panel book and many others. She has had an enormous impact on the book arts since the late 1970s."

Carta Postala was designed and hand bound in Bucharest, Romania. The photographs and postcards, purchased at a local flea market, reveal the quotidian joys and dramas of the Sturdza family in the volatile 1930’s, when Romanian industry and culture boomed and fascism began to take hold. Many thanks to Anca Cojocaru, Alexandra Dragus, and Denis Nicolae, my University of Bucharest students, who lovingly translated the postcards from Romanian into English.

"In early February, the former Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant in Richmond, California, hosted perhaps the greatest convergence of book makers in recent memory. Not the kind looking for a trifecta, but printers, typographers, paper makers, engravers, and binders—people involved in all aspects of traditional book arts. The assemblage of artists and craftspeople was remarkable even considering the range of expression of contemporary book work."

"The exhibition is designed and curated by Mariano Tomatis, Wonder Injector, writer, magician, who will himself kick it open on March Friday 13th with a lecture/show focused on the Italian influence of the art of book hacking - from the Venetian 17th century mind-reading books to Bruno Munari's magic shows on paper."

What are Artists’ Books?
Artists’ Books are works of art that take their inspiration of form from the book or the printed word. They may range from the interpretation of a classic work of literature in a sculptural format to a traditional volume that has been altered to give it new meaning. Infinite in form and subject, their creators often use traditional fine arts concepts such as collage to express their ideas.  An art form that has grown exponentially over the last forty years, artists’ books are often created as unique works or in small editions by private presses or artists’ collectives. 
Robert Bolick's insight:

A search of Lafayette's Artists' Books Collection on the genre yields 1284 entries, including works by Alicia Bailey, Julie Chen, Maureen Cummins, Steven Daiber, Karen Hanmer, Margaret Kaufman, Clifton Meador, Lois Morrison, Werner Pfeiffer, Gerhard Richter, Maryann Riker, Edward Ruscha, Buzz Spector, Barbara Tetenbaum, Erica Van Horn, Sam Winston.

 

Worth a visit if you're in Easton, PA. The Special Collections have different hours than the library. Their hours are M-F, 10:00am-12pm & 1pm-5:00pm. For more information see https://archives.lafayette.edu/frontpage
