EXPERIMENTAL FORMATS 2 | CAPTIONS
|p.A058| 03 Formats| Design: FL@33 | Project: Trans-form | Size: 497 x 320mm | Pages: 32 | Year: 2001 | Origin: UK | Produced as a special magazine-style project, the work shown in this piece is all based around a series of images of cranes and the construction process. The large scale of the project helps to create dramatic contrasts from spread to spread. The inclusion of a CD, housed in a clear plastic wallet that is bound into the spine, reinforces this contrast of scale.
|p.A058| 03 Formats| Design: FL@33 | Project: Zwischenstation / Coup de Grace | Size: 225 x 155mm | Pages: 60 loose sheets | Year: 1997 | Origin: Germany | The work of two very different poets is housed within this special double-fronted cover / folder. Their distinct styles are clearly illustrated; the expressive energy of Bartosz Maj's Zwischenstation cover is in complete contrast to the understated simplicity of Gernot Heinkelein's Coup de Grace front. These two very different typographic styles are continued throughout the loose-leaf pages of their respective books.
___ Produced as a strictly limited edition of just 100 copies, the book has a strong craft feel to it. The cover is embossed and printed in white letterpress ink, and the loose sheets are held in order with a simple bellyband. The decision not to bind the pages allows readers the freedom to explore the books in any order, and removes any linear narrative from the different poems.
