»typewriter art: a modern anthology« edited by barrie tullett

this beautiful book brings together some of the best examples by typewriter artists around the world. as well as key historical work from the bauhaus, h. n. werkman and the concrete poets, there is art by contemporary practitioners, both typewriter artists who use the keyboard as a ‘palette’ to create artworks, and artists/typographers using the form as a compositional device. the book will appeal to graphic designers, typographers, artists and illustrators, and anyone fascinated by predigital technology.

i totally love this book, therefore a huge recommendation from my side!

»eunoia« by christian bök

read it online for free

the word ‘eunoia,’ which literally means ‘beautiful thinking,’ is the shortest word in english that contains all five vowels. directly inspired by the oulipo (l’ouvroir de littérature potentielle), a french writers’ group interested in experimenting with different forms of literary constraint, eunoia is a five-chapter book in which each chapter is a univocal lipogram – the first chapter has a as its only vowel, the second chapter e, etc. each vowel takes on a distinct personality: the i is egotistical and romantic, the o jocular and obscene, the e elegiac and epic.

»mental reactions« by marius de zayas and agnes ernst meyer (1915)

by general accounts the earliest example of visual poetry in america—is the original maquette for a printed version published in the avant-garde magazine 291. both a drawing and a poem, the work is a collaboration between the mexican-born caricaturist marius de zayas (1880–1961) and the american journalist and art patron agnes ernst meyer (1887–1970).

»american psycho« by mimi cabell and jason huff

this book was made by sending the entire text of bret easton ellis’ american psycho between two gmail accounts page by page. we saved the relational ads for each page and added them back into the text as footnotes. in total, we collected over 800 relevant ads for the book. the constellations of footnoted ads throughout these pages retell the story of american psycho in absence of the original text. this retelling reveals gmail’s unpredictable insensitivity to violence, racism, and sex. it serves as a blurry portrait of an algorithm that exists in our everyday communication simultaneously forming a new portrait of the lead character, patrick bateman.
