Book launch – Working in the Edges I & II
Monday 20 January
63 Penfold Street
London NW8 8PQ
AND Publishing and The Showroom invite you to the launch of a number of new publications produced as part of Working in the Edges I & II.
Working in the Edges I & II were short evening courses exploring histories, concepts and methods of print-on-demand.
The participants tested the mechanics of the automated process and developed direct responses to the limits of the medium by intervening and disrupting it. They produced self published books through POD services or borrowed desktop copier/printer and found ways to customise, improve or challenge the limitations they come with.

A new exhibition of poster designs by legendary graphic designer Tom Eckersley opens tomorrow at the London College of Communication. 2014 marks the centenary of his birth, and the show brings together Eckersley’s posters from the LCC archives along with works by those who he inspired during his long career as a designer and educator.
… on a side note to the previous post - the MoMA Library and the Ray Johnson Estate both have fantastic Tumblr pages here & here.

Little flyer from a Ray Johnson show of collages. Received by the library in 1955. Note on the back suggests it was perhaps shown at Wittenborn’s One-Wall gallery in 1952. A sad inductee in the Hall of Shame of past library stamping practices. —ds
