Product Description

Visceralists is one of eleven books awarded the Prix Fernand Baudin Prijs, a prize giving special recognition to those books which demonstrate an outstanding quality both in their conception (editorial and graphic), and in their production (printing and binding). The calaogue for the prize, this year produced in collaboration with designer Manuela Dechamps Otamendi, is distributed together with the prize-winning books for the original price of the publication.

About Visceralists:

"The exhibition was organised around Ian Dury's controversial song 'Spasticus autisticus' (1981) about the disabled. The idea was to take the object out of the catalogue in a 'glossy', out-of-synch world and place it in a somewhat strange, if not handicapped, magazine. The graphic design is rooted in the visual typology of magazines from the early 1980s. The notion of handicap is taken up in part through the catalogue's uncut pages, which invited the reader to cut them and thereby to create an object full of rough edges."

-Phillipe Koeune of Valley of Omsk
