︎︎︎ When a book becomes an object


Belgian architecture firm RE-ST researches complex spatial issues and seeks solutions by investigating wanderspace, the ‘built-over or undeveloped space that we have produced together, but underuse on a daily basis.’ For their 10-year anniversary, they compiled this brick-sized book that explores the question: ‘Why do we build more than we need?’

This is an oh-so-important book in our current society, where we run the risk of paving every last bit of open space left. It was a great pleasure for Sarah to work on this project.

With texts by RE-ST, Tine Hens, Roel De Ridder, Leo Van Broeck and Jee Kast. Visual essay by Poolhert Productions and Jee Kast. Book design by Sarah. Production by Laurence Ostyn.

Flush-cut hardcover binding with edge printing in one colour. Cover printed in two colours on Wibalin Recycled and embossed on front and back cover. Interior printed in one colour (with a 48-page four-colour image section) on Eos 2.0.

This project is included in our case study ‘When a book becomes an object’.
