The materiality of books

Understand the challenges of the book through its materiality by means of printed objects that have been chosen for specific questions: shaping, content, images, the question of colour, form, etc. A selection of books was proposed and the participants were invited to take possession of these books and deconstruct them in order to create their own book. The aim was also to explore different printing techniques such as silkscreen or risography, and also confront the constraints of the binding format, the choice of page and the content.
