About the Book
Conceived by Lynn Harris, published by AND and designed by Åbäke with Pierre Pautler, Variable Format is an experimental sample book that considers the materiality of the page, binding, cover, spine, and differences in print and graphic reproduction. The book has been produced in twelve formats using different options of print on demand. You can find the entire series here:
Devised in 2009, AND is a platform exploring print on demand technologies to publish conceptually driven artists' books. In 2011, we launched AND Public, a framework for the production and dissemination of self-published artworks/books through print on demand. Our goal is to piggyback on this automatic process, using the low cost, fast turn around and advances in digital technologies to extend and self sustain practice.
