Launch — Fahrenheit 39

Far­en­heit 39 is an exhib­i­tion and cata­logue about the con­tem­por­ary inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ing phe­nomen­on in italy. It will be launched on Decem­ber 18th, 2010 at Gal­ler­ia d’arte Nin­apì in Ravenna (Italy).

Far­en­heit 39 invest­ig­ates pub­lish­ing as an express­ive medi­um, as fil­ing sys­tem, a dis­play sys­tem and as a plat­form for the prac­tice of crit­ic­al think­ing and writ­ing. The artists, authors, edit­ors, writers and inde­pend­ent pub­lish­ers who are involved in shap­ing these sys­tems approach the book not only as a form of exhib­i­tion but also as an art form.

Tra­di­tion­ally graph­ic design­ers have played a key roll in shap­ing and form­ing the provided con­tent of books, how­ever, with recent devel­op­ments and shifts in the roll of the design­er in the pro­cess they are now in the pos­i­tion of draft­ing and edit­ing con­tent.

Self-pub­lished books are often pro­duced in low edi­tions and can be dif­fi­cult to source. They allow us to con­sume con­tent in a way con­ven­tion­al / trade books often do not, hindered by requests of the author, pub­lish­er and mar­ket demands. Fahren­heit 39 is an attempt to cata­logue and invent­ory the cur­rent state of self-pub­lished books in Italy.
