Elektrobiblioteka / Electrolibrary

Wow, check out this video “Making of” for an “Electro-Library” diploma project for the the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice (Poland), inspired by El Lissitzky’s manifesto published in 1923.

From the article and manifesto for the project:

Lissitzky told us that ‘the new book demands the new writer’, and with the advent of the iPhone, the iPad and the Kindle, the new book is undeniably here. But there is more to it than even Lissitzky dreamed of. The nature of the e-book now means that the new book demands a new kind of writer, reader and designer.

The Electro-Library demands that we reconsider every aspect of page design – from the details that we understood to represent the craft of typography, to the elements of the page itself: the running heads, the folios, the paragraph and chapter. The ‘design of the book-space, set according to the constraints of printing mechanics’ no longer matters to us. This new page is an undiscovered landscape of opportunity and possibility.

The surface can now truly transcend space and time – the ‘printed’ surface must be re-invented and the infinity of books embraced. The rules no longer apply.

Everything about the page is new again. Everything we ‘know’ about the conventions of book design and typography demands to be re-invented for the new kind of writer, reader and designer.
