The bi-weekly, web exclusive series includes episodes on typography, steampunk, internet culture, video game art and more.

 

This collection features episodes from the ground-breaking first season of OFF BOOK.

 

The new season of OFF BOOK premiered on March 7th, 2012, and is available here.

Books are in a conflicted state. Should they still exist in a digital era? Will they all be replaced by Kindles and Nooks? These questions dominate the discussion of books in our time. A select group of artists, who use books as their medium, engage this discussion from another angle. From pop culture pop-ups, to surreal sculptural stories, to reformations of antique sacred texts, these creators re-envision what the experience of a book can be. At times playful, and other times profound, this episode explores the boundaries of one of the most important human creations.
