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.

"To imagine the draaiorgel and the modern CBD as a mismatched couple is easy. What is perhaps less easy to imagine is the actual scenario – passers by dressed in suits, commuter traffic/yuppies on their way to half-empty buildings. In their midst stands Zefi cranking a cast-iron wheel that produces strange long tones, intersected by shorter tones. Sound devoid of true musicality, perhaps something more like sonic shapes, thrown back at the architectural shapes from which they were derived – archaic and primitive."
(Excerpt from Symphony as Surrogate; text written by James Beckett, published 2010 by the Dutch Art Institute/ArtEZ)
The Publications Project is a collection of artist books issued by the Dutch Art Institute and designed in collaboration with the Werkplaats Typografie.
