Guerrilla Bookmaking

 

 

At Editions, we see books as a sculptural method for storing and sharing information.

 

More than text, they are also visual images, unfolding pages, sequences of ideas, unusual bindings and molded cases.

 

"Heaven knows I've tried to make conventional books," reports Ed Hutchins. "But every time I start, illustrations pop off thepage, pages unfold like origami, and letters take three dimensional shape."

 

We don't have a traditional printing press so we've turned to non-traditional methods like rubber stamps, cast images, block printing, photocopying and flash-bulb stencils to reproduce our messages. We also use materials found close athand--scrap paper,museum board, stickers, candy containers, candle molds, dowels, key chains, industrial scraps--to create our books.
