Caution Contains Materials of an Abrasive Nature
CAUTION CONTAINS MATERIALS OF AN ABRASIVE NATURE
David. G Kirby (Paperboy Press)
Product description: This artist book is encased in sandpaper. The coarse nature of the exterior is accompanied by the book’s binding: hole punched, then subsequently bound with twisted nails and string. The title is stamped across the cover in a black and red serifed font.
The interior pages are printed upon a thin cartridge paper. A mixture of inkjet printing and cellulose thinner was used to produce the final result.
The narrative initially follows the exploration of limited computer software through the use of distorted typography and symbols before emerging into repeated geometric patterns and obscure imagery.
Publication details: 1997, University of Portsmouth, United Kingdom, hand bound: hole punched, sealed with nails and string.
Edition No. 4 of 5 (First Edition).
