Robyn Sassen considers the apartheid army as an unexpected incubator for artists’ books in South Africa; Dr Anne Hammond examines non-narrative sequence in photographic books; Your Turn: experiments in narrative and play is co-written by Patricia Allmer, Jonathan Carson, Rosie Miller and John Sears, exploring the book as a site for game-playing and storytelling; Kyoko Tachibana writes about the current state of book arts in Japan, where graphic design is prevalent, and artists’ books are often considered to be “designed” by artists; Danny Flynn shares his experiments with laser cutting acrylic to replace wood and metal type for letterpress print; and Tate Shaw’s Enfolded by Holes, considers the implications of our relationship with the open book.
