Elemental Disappearances by Jason Mohaghegh and Dejan Lukić came out today from tiny collections (an imprint of punctum). I designed the interior and the cover. It's a collection of paragraph-long theoretically-inflected essays that are each connected to an image. A curious little book that rewards exploring, and one where I feel like I did a good job marrying form and content.
Photography in the Middle by Rob Coley and Dean Lockwood was published today from punctum. I designed the cover based on a series of photos by Eadweard Muybridge.
The first book by punctum's newest imprint, tiny collections, came out today. Walk on the Beach is a collection of photos, drawings, and essays that were gathered at and around an event held by the Material Collective at the 2014 BABEL Conference. I designed the interior and the cover (and the logo for the press!).
Murder Ballads by David John Brennan came out today from punctum. I designed the interior and the cover, based on a section of the first edition of Lyrical Ballads. The book is a very creative work of criticism, mixing scholarly writing with short poetic plays, novelistic scenes, and other modes in order to get at the question of authorship in Lyrical Ballads. The interior design reflects this salmagundi approach, with sections in a very modern style and other sections straight from the 1798 rulebook.
Why the Center Can't Hold by Tom O'Neill was published today by punctum. I designed the cover and the interior.
Object Oriented Environs, edited by Jeffrey Jerome Cohen and Julian Yates, was published today by punctum. I designed the cover and interior.
Two companion books by artist Marina Zurcow came out from punctum today. More&More (The Invisible Ocean) is the catalogue and companion essay to her current show; I did some light editing for that book. More&More (A Guide to the Harmonized System) I was much more deeply involved with. It's an alphabetical list of the codes used to ship various projects in container vessels, with a small number of micro-essays scattered throughout. I designed the interior of that book, and write a few of the micro-essays. It's a fun brick of a book.
