[Square]2.

Claremont, CA: Scripps College Press, 2003. Square small octavo. (36)pp. One of 90 copies, signed by the artists, who were students in a Typography class directed by Kitty Maryatt at Scripps College. The book is a final project for the class and a collaboration between all seven students, who imagined it as a method of interrogating the accepted standards for bookmaking. Each student, in his or her own contributed section, toyed with broad or nonexistent margins, cutouts, tipped-in fabrics, typographically broken text, color, and image. The content of each section ranges from the conceptual, such as Daniel Chang's philosophizing on the nature of a square, to the personal, such as Erika Moen's reflection on her lesbian identity and the subsequent bigotry she faced. A clever expression from neophyte printers on the possibilities a book presents. Bound with an open stitch in heavy boards covered in silver paper and with square-shaped cutouts to both covers exposing gold beneath. Fine. Item #30650

Price: $750.00
