V&A and books

January 12th, 2009 by Noam Berg

My friend and colleague Adrienne’s class had a field trip today to the National Art Library, housed in the Victoria & Albert Museum. I was able to tag along for the fun. We saw a sampling of their artist’s books collection. In case you’re wondering, I mean books created as works of art, not regular books written by or about artists.  There were some pretty neat ones, especially a Flying Fish Press book that unfolded to create a cave, at the end of which lurked an octopus. Very cool.

About the Mad Scientist Running this Show

Noam Berg is a graduate Student in the Design and Technology MFA program at Parsons School for Design in New York City. He is also the (debatably) creative force behind Exfish Studio. Noam is obsessed with old vacuum tubes, type design, computers, guitars and comic books. Noam likes Thai sweet chili sauce, hats, suits & ties, Wacom tablets, Japanese green tea (with the toasted rice), nerdy science girls, many varieties of music, SLR cameras, AnarchoJudaism, lithography and pocket watches. Noam's not a big fan of cell phones, the cool kids, ugly and over-used fonts (you know who you are!) and talking about himself in the third person. Seriously, this is really weird. I'm gonna stop doing it now.
