The relationship between the book format and experimental typographic approaches can be examined from the mid-18th century right through to more recent contemporary examples. While advances in digital communication continue to prevail, this presentation explores how the book as an analogue format remains an important space for experimental typographic approaches. It explores how typographic expression and abstraction can be utilised as a means to both enhance and disrupt communication, examining how language can be considered as a material for experimental typography. To evidence, this presentation will consider examples from contemporary practitioners and key works from my own series of 'Process Books' which encompass screenprinted typographic errors, abstractions and nuances.
