Mohawk Superfine, museum board / wooden letterforms & Lightline Gothic / 56 pages / 1 ink / 9 x 12 x .75 inches

This book was produced during a three week artist residency at Wells Book Arts Center. It took root in a fascination with type specimen books, brokenness, typographic zooming-in, and a few boxes of partial wood letterforms set aside in the P22 Design Research Lab. A Specimen of Broken is the result of a series of Broken Studies; 24 studies were printed double sided, trimmed, collated, sewn into museum board covers, and numbered and signed by the artist. Very limited edition. Of 10 copies, 7 are available for sale. For the full story of the residency, check out this blog post.
