JH ENGSTRÖM - Random, an excerise in book production from MÖREL


First presented at OffPrint London in May, Random is an exercise in producing a book solely on the "will of the medium".
Engstrom randomly selected 60 images. Forty of these images were randomly selected by Mörel and randomly sequenced. The printer was asked to print the book on any uncoated paper they randomly had to spare. Finally, a friend of Mörel's was asked to photograph random parts of the book's content which was then printed on a fiber based wallpaper material for the covers.

I was delighted get a copy of Random at OffPrint London, and to me it was one of the standout books I found at the fair. The book is in an edition of only 100 and at the time of writing only 30 copies are left. The bookwork is 30 x 25 cm and has 40 pages. £25 + Shipping.
