S’RETSB ETAIGELLC YRANOI was created in Aaron Cochick’s “Hand-Mechanical Approaches to Artist’s Books” workshop at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in June 2017. Drawing upon Cohick’s emphasis on typography, simple registration systems, printmaking, and experimentation with basic book forms, the book is a dynamic visual poem of found text, enlarged and pochoir-printed from three photocopied pages of Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary. With its modular fold-outs and expanding spreads, the reader can reassemble the text in a manner that mirrors the playful process of its composition.
26 pgs. 4 5/8 x 6 7/8.”
Variable edition of 3.
I am greatly indebted to the College Book Arts Association and Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts for the generous scholarship that allowed for this work to be made.
Exhibited in Bibliophoria V at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts in Sebastopol, CA, June 2018.
