library library explores publication as a graphic design practice. Each issue orbits around a literary text, and experiments with form and materiality through formats that challenge the dominant models of commercial graphic design and mainstream publishing. This project aims to build a community through collaborative making, and to connect with a small yet engaged public. The design of each issue considers the performative potential of publication, and explores diverse methods of dissemination from exhibition to multiplication and distribution.
