Fanzine-like artist’s book gathering historical anecdotes on modern print culture.
“We ‘square men’ had a sign by which we knew each other. If a true brother came to my case, ostensibly to borrow sorts, and idly let a few lower-case ‘i’ s’ sift through his fingers, I would let some lower-case ‘k’ s’ sift through my fingers. Thus we would understand each other without need of conversation.”
Published at the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Galerie Crèvecœur, Paris, from January 27 to March 18, 2017.
