Sun 8/11
Bookmobile @ PS WHat? (1968 SW 5th Avenue, between College and Jackson)
12pm-6pm
BOOKMOBILE VISITING HOURS! Browse the bookmobile collection!
The works in the collection are a juried selection, ranging from one-of-a-kind hand-bound to photocopied works, which demonstrate inventive explorations of the book and narrative forms. However, the focus of the projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project is not merely on the books as material objects, but also on an intimate understanding of the processes of independent production and circulation of such works. Favoring a D.I.Y. (do-it-yourself) style of small-scale production, the project emphasizes a desire for the distribution of works that would otherwise remain inaccessible to the public at large.
