This week we will be discussing:

The Binder and the Server
Published by Triple Canopy, March 2012
Black and white, 70pp
ISBN 978-0-9847346-1-0
Designed by Franklin Vandiver

The Binder and the Server is the outcome of several group discussions among Triple Canopy editors, and was written by senior editor Colby Chamberlain. The essay details the history of Triple Canopy in order to stake out our position on the ideology of Internet culture. By carefully examining the history of new-media publishing and the shift from disciplinary to control societies, the essay addresses the politics of online identity, friendship, labor, and the dream of digital democracy. In short: On the Internet, we are all contractors.

This  70 page pocket-sized edition of The Binder and the Server, designed by Franklin Vandiver, draws on experimental paperbacks of the 1960s, chief among them the collaborations of Marshall McLuhan and graphic designer Quentin Fiore. The book is characterized by cinematic layouts that merge text, typography, illustration, photography, and original artwork by Josh Kline and Dan Torop.

Available from Lulu, price £3.95
