[Textologies] – Reactive Books by John Maeda

P22 is pleased to offer a selection of artist books which transcend the traditional limits and interactions of paper and the computer. These unique books were created by digital artist, John Maeda and produced by our Japanese associates, Digitalogue. John Maeda is currently a professor of design at MIT. Each book is 4 1/2″ x 6 1/4″ and contain a CD or floppy disk.

These “books” have already sold out, but you can get a sense of what they are about via these QuickTime previews.

If you are not familiar with John Meada’s work, he’s definitely worth a look. There’s more stuff than I can digest in one sitting… I was first exposed to his Java-based Calendars a few years ago… they still stand up as remarkable point-and-click delights.
