BUT NOW SPACE WAS PART OF THE OBJECT1 is an inquiry into whether or not a typeface can be absent in its own type specimen. Negative space becomes positive space, secondary becomes primary, reference becomes content. False protagonist Booq Alt delivers the performance of Booq—a typeface whose identity can only be imagined through the interplay of transcribed lectures from Booksfromthefuture Summer School 2015 and a pool of public domain images.
A publication by Masaki Miwa and Ying Tong Tan, published in parallel with The multiple lives of a blank book (Booksfromthefuture, 2015).
