leave a comment »

This Friday, 18th of May please join us for the launch a small publication which was produced for the eShelf project,  documenting  the events at X Marks the Bökship and the index of online publishers included in the eShelf. We will also show a selection of publications from produced by the A-Z contributors that we have collected over this time period.

The collection will be showcased at the shop until the 27th of May.

eShelf is a collection of artists’ online publishing activities and a series of events introducing digital publishing projects, initiatives and resources.

Our aim was to showcase a selection of online independent publishing activities, showing examples of creative and experimental uses of online publishing, and also to bring together publishers working across similar digital platforms.

We wanted to create a platform where we could demonstrate and share a variety of different projects that were happening in such an exciting and diverse field, one that is undergoing a substantial redefinition and having to adapt to so many cultural changes.

eShelf is meant to be a snapshot, or observation, of the here and now. We compiled an A – Z of online publishing activities into the eShelf, which is indexed online at http://www.eshelf.info. We first began posting a countdown from A-Z on the eShelf on the 18th of April, beginning with A, and ending with Z on the 18th of May 2012.

We invited publishers and individuals to introduce their publishing activities at a series of talks held at X Marks the Bökship. The first set of talks took place on the 1st May 2012, where we invited contributors to come discuss their work that were listed in the A-M of the online index. This event was followed by another series of talks on the 9th May 2012, where a selection from the remaining N-Z eShelf contributors came to talk about their publications.

Dracula V is a digital book containing a selection of photographs, press clippings, digital imagery and miscellaneous flat works accumulated by the artist, James Jarrett, in the five years between 2006-2011.
As well as being a variation on the artist book theme, Dracula V is also a reevaluation of Bram Stoker’s original novel Dracula (1897).The work, launched as a digital publication, attempts to develop the manifestation of the body of work beyond the seeming finality of the book format. The launch of Dracula V at New Gallery London started this process by substituting the physicality of the book for a projection of images and a QR code, which enabled visitors to download it onto a Smartphone.

Booksonline is a project run by the French designer Pierre Hourquet. Using the format of a book as a conventional method of displaying photography, Booksonline is a good example of an updated version of this convention, introducing a refreshing digital form for the art book and zine.

AND Public is a platform for the production and dissemination of artists’ self-publishing using print-on-demand.

Print-on-demand is a printing process in which new copies of a book are
not printed until an order has been received, allowing for short runs,
low production costs, immediate response to an audience, and almost no storage.
We see this as an extension of a creative and sustainable practice.

How it works

1. You develop your book – AND give you tips.
2. You decide which print-on-demand service is right.
3. Upload your pdf to the printer’s online server.
4. The printer will process, print, bind and ship to you.
5. AND will feature your book in our online shop and at X Marks the Bökship.

AND Public is also currently holding a Self-Publishing Surgery.
