Fibre Libre – Bridget Elmer
A wonderful example of the concept of form supporting the same concept of content, this multi-phase collaborative book hybridizes traditional printing processes with contemporary computer related processes in a structural hybridization of pamphlet and accordion. The removable spines invite a variety of viewing and display options.
The undertaking of this project is best explained at the wiki-site devoted to the project:
