Book as sculpture

TypeBound is the name of an exhibit curated by Craig Saper at the University of Central Florida. It consists of books as sculpture from Florida collections, and a number of typewriter poems borrowed from the great concrete & visual poetry collection of Marvin and Ruth Sackner (of Miami). “Two of the book’s most fundamental elements — its bindings and its type — are separated and examined for creative possibilities as they are freed of their basic, traditional functions.”
