An Encyclopedia of Everything

WAHL, Svenja (Germany) (Book 520)

3.0 # 17 (Colours/Folding/Recycling)

Svenja Wahl An Encyclopedia of Everything

(Accordion book, unnumbered.) From very early days on IUOMA I remember Svenja folding/recycling and coloring the most interesting old paper/photographs, magazine images. This time, old patterns are stamped and stuck on black matt paper recalling barbed wire forms of separation.

Stephanie Turnbull (UK) Book 521

3.0 # 17 (Colours/Folding/Recycling)

Stephanie Turnbull An Encyclopedia of Everything

(Unnumbered, unsigned, accordion bound book, with pamphlet stitch inserts). A chunky, gem of a book, which must recall the long evolution of Stephanie’s printing career. There are twists of humor, books in books, overlays, cut-outs, complex folds and pop-ups – a solid investigation of the title the group tackled.

TICTAC/Ptrzia (Germany)

3.0 # 17 (Colours/Folding/Recycling) (Smoothie)

TICTAC An Encyclopedia of Everything

(Accordion book signed Ptrzia (tictac), number 7 of 8). I still cannot for the life of me work out how TICTAC manages to make such elegant books with pristine cuts and folds and no finger marks – not ever! Lime and Orange smoothies I think – soothing to say the least.
