  25. 25. Someone Else's Holiday Craig Atkinson, 2011 Someone Else's Holiday is from an ongoing series of 'found photo' books. I often buy 35mm cameras from charity shops if they contain film, then have the film processed. If there are enough images to create a book or narrative, I do. Authorship and the nature of the photographs are obvious questions. I don't know whether the photographer is alive or dead, whether the camera was donated as a gesture of good will or cleared out of hatred. It's exciting to know I'm the first person to see the images that someone, possibly many years ago, has taken. www.caferoyalbooks.com
  26. 26. Someone Else's Skiing Holiday, Craig Atkinson, 2013 www.caferoyalbooks.com
  27. 27. Someone Else's Wedding, Craig Atkinson, 2011 www.craigatkinson.co.uk
  28. 28. Atramentum John McDowall, 2012 A materiality of language is made manifest by notionally pooling the ink of the printed text of Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy. The percentage of page covered by the black print of the words is calculated as surface area and multiplied by the 1,382 pages of the book. This total quantity of ink is reproduced in the form a single solid black circle (diameter of 180 cm), which is laid out as a sequential imposition in a new book of the same page dimensions as the published example consulted. The black disc’s formal reductive finality presents a counterpointing rendering of Burton’s exceedingly wide-ranging, earnest yet satirical, compendium of virtually all the books in a 17th-century library.

  32. 32. 56 Broken Kindle Screens, Sebastian Schmieg in collaboration with Silvio Lorusso (www.silviolorusso.com), 2012. “The book takes as its starting point the peculiar aesthetic of broken E ink displays and serves as an examination into the reading device's materiality. As the screens break, they become collages composed of different pages, cover illustrations and interface elements.” You can also download a Kindle version from the website. http://www.sebastianschmieg.com/56brokenkindlescreens

  39. 39. On 7 July 2012, at a food and art festival, 29 people ate original drawings of various wild animals. Each participant chose a picture from various wild animals drawn by Kurt Johannessen. The drawings were served on a biscuit made into a meal with cheese, omelette, herbs, salad and spices etc. The drawings were beautifully prepared by Pavana Reid (above).

  45. 45. The Famous Five Food, Christa Harris, 2010. http://christa-rebecca-harris.blogspot.co.uk

  47. 47. All the four letter words that are sometimes used with another four letter word (that I can think of) Guy Bigland, 2012 460 pages 460 words drawn from everyday language collected over the space of a year. Although gathered as pairs, each four letter word was then separated from its partner and placed in alphabetical order which creates a juxtaposition with a new word dictated by the alphabetical ordering. This taxonomy imposes a structure upon the familiar to create unfamiliar new arrangements. http://guybigland.tumblr.com
  48. 48. A Dialogue in Useful Phrases is a book based on “conversational phrases” that were found in Grenville Kleiser‟s Fifteen Thousand Useful Phrases, an optimistic handbook from 1917 providing “felicitous expressions for enriching the vocabulary.” Elisabeth Tonnard, 2010 Kleiser‟s conversational phrases starting with „I‟ were taken and placed opposite those starting with „you‟. The „I‟ phrases are running in alphabetical order down the verso pages, the „you‟ phrases down the recto pages. A dialogue is formed from the random meetings of these phrases. It is a dialogue in the purest sense, a dialogue that expresses nothing other than itself. The book has a square format to indicate the empty room where such communications might be taking place. http://elisabethtonnard.com
  49. 49. La Chamade, Christopher Robinson 'La Chamade' is a facsimile of Francois Sagan's novel of that name with all the text removed other than sentences beginning with the word 'She...' up until the first punctuation. By removing most of the source text and leaving space where the removed words were it transforms the novel into a book of original concrete poetry. Along with 'Sunlight On Cold Water' & 'Wonderful Clouds' it forms a triptych of parallel narratives. When read together the three books seem to provide alternative views of a very similar story. www.wordsofdeadpoets.co.uk

  53. 53. Some of the Buildings on The Sunset Strip, Tom Sowden, 2008. Concertina format book, digital print interior pages, screenprinted cover, edition of 30, 180 x 140 mm, extending to 15ft.
  54. 54. Various Blank Pages and Ink, Doro Boehme and Eric Baskauskas, 2009. Perfect bound book, digital print, edition of 500, 205 x 150 mm

  58. 58. Random Passions Karen Hanmer, USA Couples from romance novel covers traced on translucent paper layer together and multiple new combinations emerge. Laser prints on “vellum” paper, pamphlet in case binding covered with velvet finish book cloth, hot stamped title. 2008. www.karenhanmer.com
  59. 59. Book Jacket by Sally Alatalo, insulated with shredded romance novels
  60. 60. Legendary, Lexical, Loquacious Love, Karen Reimer, writing as Eve Rhymer, Sara Ranchouse Publications, USA An alphabetised romance novel taking all of the words in an existing published romance novel and sorting them alphabetically. “I wondered how the love story would exist without a narrative structure/plot. I used the alphabet - an arbitrary, non-hierarchical ordering convention - for its objective unemotional character, which places it at odds with the subjective emotional character of romance novels. I wanted to see whether, if I put a romance novel‟s cover on it, it would be possible to read an alphabetical list of words as a love story. I think it is.” www.sararanchouse.com
