Rescued Books

Posted in Hand printed, With Relish by Type Tasting on April 24, 2012

It seems wrong to throw away a book, even if it’s falling apart or it’s been usurped by the interactive map on my shiny mobile phone. This is a series of prints that gives the damaged books I come across a new home and gives a nod to the printed page. The prints will gradually change colour over time as the pages yellow and the white ink appears to get brighter by contrast.

The first titles will be launched at the Unlimited Editions shop as part of Open House in Brighton.

    I couldn’t agree more and this makes my heart sing. Every book deserves an a second chance if it has reached the end of its first incarnation for any reason. Let’s just hope you don’t end up having to do this to entire libraries as they lose funding. Just beautiful.
