After our last “educationalbooks” series, let's come back with another one just as special!
What about #typographybooks for #creativethinkers?!...so let's begin with the artist’s book SLOT by Tricia Treacy / @pointedpress in occasion of her presentation at @san.serriffe art book shop in Amsterdam (tonight)! COME OVER AND TAKE A LOOK!!! SLOT is quite a masterpiece just arrived here, the result of Tricia together with others members of the creative community of the American Academy in Rome / @amacademyrome .
They propose a printed matter setup investigating the relationship between art, design, and collaborative writing, a cross writing format, creating an interdisciplinary and international exchange. The final result is a series of publications and artist prints animated by narration, superimposition, comparative research, and open dialogue.
They were asked to reflect upon the themes of privacy and matters unspoken, upon the thresholds between public and private. So Treacy drew inspiration from the Roman cityscape: mail slots, which beckon passersby to imagine private realms hidden from prying eyes, shutters, and painted urban walls... that offered conceptual and format elements in visual collages and motifs that echo throughout the book.
