Dieresis by Bern Porter

  • Publisher Bern Porter
  • Year 1969

Book recommended by Chris Burnett.

This is one of Porter’s best books of ‘founds’ that, like a city, stands out in its shear density of graphic material. He used a striated pattern of collage assembly that anticipates the scanning era of graphic recirculation.

This book is part of Books and the city Symposium which took place in Maastricht, the Netherlands, from 22–24 June 2016. Organised by Maastricht University, NL, the Van Eyck Academie, NL, and the University of Canterbury, NZ.
