Summer 2012 / Printed Matter


The latest round of PLL Printed Matter has been printed, amassed, collated, addressed and enveloped.  Included in the Summer 2012 are two posters and two 3x5 library cards:



Above is the Textual Genetics poster, following how texts can relate and lead to one another (11" x 17" / edition of 200.)  Below is a stack of the latest in the Entering the Robert Smithson Library series, Alain Robbe-Grillet's 'Snapshots' (8.5" x 14" / edition of 200.)


Two 3" x 5" letterpress printed cards round out this summer's packet.  Both are recreations, of sorts, of book cards left in formerly-deaccessioned books that are now part of the PLL collection.  Each card has been translated through OCR and hand-set in metal type.
