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.
