All or nothing. Encyclopaedia Universalis of typography

55th Graphic Culture Week, from August 19 to 25

A week exploring the most ambitious « works » that our society has produced : accessibility to information, interfaces in paper or digital form, knowledge-building, collaborative editing, pleasure when reading on-screen or on paper, social challenges, this source of inspiration and infinite information in the form of…The Encyclopedia.

We use them for practical purposes, or for fascination, or for fun.
All : by wanting to contain all human knowledge these book/libraries can become fragile and obsolescent or even become victims of their own vanity, perhaps at the risk of becoming… Nothing ?

Authors, typographers, graphists, artists, publishers and producers attending the Rencontres internationales de Lure, in the Alpes de Haute Provence, will participate in this Anatomical exercise between 19th and 25th of August 2007.
