The publication titled XYZ T, contains the analysis of the process of shaping the form of the artistic book. Fascinated by this form of artists’ expression, the designers made a thorough study through the era, as to bring the reader a compendium of the knowledge on this all-embracing theme.
“The artist's books have opened up new kind of narratives and new opportunities for an interaction with the reader. Across the time, experiments about the form and the subject of books have lead to several results and publications. The project’s research is about the dimensions of time and space in artist's books and it analyzes the traditional history of the editorial artworks, the contemporary publishing and the new technologies. In this project, the books of some of the most revolutionary authors have been selected, among the vastness of existing examples. From Futurism and Dadaism to Fluxus and Concrete Poetry movements, the purpose of the artist’s book has always deconstructed the traditional conception of the book's dimensions,” shared their thoughts Elisa and Giovanni.
