X100. An exhibition of books from 100 launches
at X Marks the Bökship, 2008 – 2013
Since X Marks the Bökship opened in Cambridge Heath Road with Donlon Books in 2008, there have been 100 launches in the shop of books by independent publishers.
They include first issues of journals, pamphlets, artworks, box sets, an eBook, a website, a typeface, all published by artists, curators and designers who experiment with production as much as content. They range from photobooks to plays, printed in short-runs on Riso, Digital, Print-on-demand and Photocopier.
Each book launch is unique, accompanied by exhibitions, performances, readings and on-site production, often last minute, energetic and fun. They have bought together individual publishers to create a local publishing community producing an increasing body of work.
The 100th launch will be marked on Saturday 14th September with an exhibition of these books.
