A Monument to the Book as Object

What exactly is a book? The Thing The Book asks that question of more than 30 creative visionaries.  Each traditional element of a book – from endpapers to ribbon bookmarks to page numbers – has been assigned to a different artist or writer to use as his or her own personal exhibition space.  Miranda July’s naughty errata slip, Jonathan Lethem’s Foster Wallace-esque footnotes, Ed Ruscha’s medieval bookplate, not to mention essays, fiction, photo collections, artworks, centerfolds, a reading group guide – there's something for everyone.

San Francisco-based artists Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan are founders and editors of THE THING Quarterly.
