Octavo Books practices a unique bookshop model, originated and run by Boris Jardine, a History of Science Curator at the Science Museum in London. Based on intensive historical research and drawing on a large private collection, Octavo offers only a few rare and important books at a time. A new web project is underway that will archive the work of running Octavo Books, sorting its research and images into a series of reading lists, syllabi and other resources.
Mark Pawson has been experimenting with self-organized museums and collections for over 30 years. His extensive and unique library of printed matter includes zines, mail art, small press art publications, and a large number of miscellaneous print phenomenon. Mark also creates his own books, and distributes hard to find artist books. Mark has recently ‘unboxed’ his archive in a solo exhibition at Xero Kline & Coma.
