EXHIBITION: nano nano II - an exhibition of independently handmade books


Wow, totally jealous of these OCAD kids, who got to take a course on indie book publishing at the grassroots level. Not only were they schooled in high & low tech print processes ranging from digital & analogue to screen printing & letterpress, they were also encouraged to explore & push beyond conventional historical, structural and cultural constructs of what makes a book a book.

The results? An impressive collection of visually and thematically eclectic works totally worth checking out. Look out for books covering topics like horoscope cartoons, (un) lucky rabbits, the history of nowhere, and Chinese paper cuts.

The opening party takes place tonight, Wed. June 20th, at Babel Books and Music (123 Ossington Avenue) from 8 PM till 10 PM. If you can’t make it, don’t fret, you can check them in the window at Pages (256 Queen St W) from June 24 till July 15, as well as being able to purchase multiples of the books there for several weeks.
