Non Sense.

[Claremont, CA:]: Scripps College Press, 2014. Of an edition of 101 copies, this is number 49. Signed in ink on the colophon by the students and their professor, Kitty Maryatt. The illustrations were produced by cutting plastic Duralar stencils and coloring with Colorbox pigment pads. Ten students at the Scripps College Press created, set metal type by hand, printed by letterpress, and handbound this book. Six colors of paper were chosen to suggest the way we might experience silence through the senses. Rives BFK and Arches Cover were selected for this purpose. The typeface selected was 12 pt. Centaur and Arrighi. A fine copy. Japanese bookcloth over boards. Oblong octavo in a double accordion binding. Unpaginated. Item #17470

The Humanities Institute and Scripps College provides lectures, films, exhibits and discussion groups every year on a rich and multi-faceted theme, one of which was silence. The bookarts students adopted this theme for the Scripps College Press book project in order to investigate how we experience silence through our senses. The fact that total silence is impossible to experience, since it only occurs in a vacuum was discussed; the students proceeded to tease out those aspects of silence that we can experience physically or metaphorically.
