MAPPING THE LIBRARY is the outcome of a workshop conducted by Experimental Jetset at Werkplaats Typografie, May – June 2010, part of the annual Best Books project at WT. Participants were asked to turn their favourite books 2009 into maps; consequently, formal connections among the selected books were made that in turn resulted in a giant 16-piece collective map. Working with the format of the newspaper, every student was given one sheet. The inside spread was used for the individual maps, the cover for the part of the collective map showing the chosen book. The back gave information about the book and allowed students to explain their interpretation.

Shortly after Sultan Said bin Taimur was deposed in a bloodless coup (1970) by his son Qaboos bin Said, ex-Magnum photographer Bruno Barbey was send to Oman to catch the change on film. At that time, war was expected, but nothing happened. 30 years later re-discovered by a Omani businessman, the images were used for this book, made in honor of the Sultan Qaboos. A discussion about the views in ethnographic photography was the starting point for the concept of this book. Dividing the images in two groups: images where the photographer/viewer is the observant and images where the viewer is the object of observation.
