A
21 × 29.7 cm, 16 pages, edition of 65

A is one of a series of graphic enquiries into the form, structure and topology of the book. It investigates the relationship between form and content, treating these as discrete entities. Traditionally, the content of a book is closely related to to its physical structure in the form of signatures, sections or chapters and ultimately, the page. The content of this book ignores these structural principles. Published by Yagland.
