Abstract

An Artists' Book which literally combines the work of the contributors to form a changing sequence of images and pages.
"Flatpack/PlaskaPaczka is a unique collaboration between artists, writers and designers, reflecting the interaction of their ideas and observations based on the experience of travel. Flatpack/PlaskaPaczka can be read in a number of ways; as four separate books, as a series of larger narratives or as a random series of connections and statements. Flatpack/PlaskaPaczka is a book of component parts; journeys, sketches, photographs and notes; connections and associations; art and typography. This book is a demonstration in the exploration, not only of the principles of collaboration between artists and writers (Gordon Brennan, John Brown, Michael Docherty [ECA], Jason Goodwin [award winning author] Ken Cockburn [poet/ editor], Elizabieta Wojcik-Leese [Translator] and Tullett), but is also about engaging the reader in that collaboration by acting as a proposition in ways of non-linear reading and visual narratives. Flatpack/PlaskaPaczka is an Artists book that will also be exhibited as an installation, utilizing different permutations of layout alongside associated work in Poland in 2008. It has already been exhibited at the Edinburgh College of Art (Evolution House).Tullett co-initiated the project, designed it, created the signature typography for the piece, oversaw the production and made the experimental format a reality. FlatPack/PlaskaPaczka has had peer recognition in Eye Magazine (the international journal of Graphic Design), as part of the Books received section, Issue No.63. Vol 16, Spring 2007, pp.87. Reviewed in MAP magazine (http://www.mapmagazine.co.uk/home). FlatPack|PlaskaPaczka has been bought by Winchester School of Art and by the University of Northhampton for their Artists' Book Archives and it has been included in Sarah Bodman’s (http://www.uwe.ac.uk/amd/lan2d/bodman.htm) talk at the ARLIS conference - researching and marketing artists books and the role of special collections in supporting teaching and learning
(http://www.arlis.org.uk/conf/arlis%202007/index.html). FlatPack|PlaskaPackza has been shortlisted for the British Book Design and Publication Awards 2007 (www.britishbookawards.org) and The Cream Awards 2007
