Code-X. Paper, Ink, Pixel and Screen.
Code—X. Published by bookRoom press edited by Danny Aldred and Emmanuelle Waeckerlé, foreword by Alessandro Ludovico and endnotes by John Warwicker.
Code—X brings together a selection of personal histories of the current ‘transforming’ and ‘expanding’ of the book medium with the aim to challenge the very notion of what it could be(come) in today’s complex information era. This project sets out to explore a new chapter in publishing as creative practice from different disciplinary perspectives including book arts and graphic design. The design of Code—X represents a playful and daring twist of ink imitating pixel to render composition and design. The content is seen as a continuous scroll, cropped where screen meets paper edge and includes full colour inserts on every page with special fluorescent inks throughout.
