A fork in the road: type bites
BookArtObject Edition 4 2012
A fork in the road is title number 35 of BookArtObject Edition 4. BookArtObject is an informal group of book artists who make small editions of artist’s books in response to texts. Edition 4 is based on Sarah Bodman’s book An Exercise for Kurt Johannessen.
A fork in the road is a series of typographic ‘bites’ and includes a concertina featuring the Robert Frost poem, The road not taken, which you can see here. The book is constructed using oriental binding with a corrugated paper wrap cover which is fastened with a picnic fork. The pages are printed on Hahnemuhle archival photo rag paper using pigment inks. There are 15 books in the edition.
Edition 4 of BookArtObject was exhibited in two parts: Part One was on show in the Quiet Room at Bower Ashton Library, UWE, Bristol England, in March and April 2013, and Part Two was exhibited later in the year.
