“Initiated by Jan van Eyck Academie-participant Matylda Krzykowski, Display is a book that examines the notion of showing. It does so through contributed texts and images, presenting a wide variety of takes on the subject.
The cover depicts the display-windows of Depot Basel (a space for contemporary design) in which the book launch would take place. In doing so, the cover displays the physical context in which the book is displayed creating a paradoxical ping-pong of references. While the initial and concluding pages of the book show full-bleed images of Depot Basel and its display systems, the main content is treated in a straight-forward way, dividing text- and image-contributions into separate sections.
Display was RISO printed in an edition of 100 in the Charles Nypels Lab at the Jan van Eyck Academie. Furthermore, the book gave debut to my typeface Dalat.
Permission to publish the following images was given
