This Book To Be

H55
2001

‘I Want The Title Of This Book To Be _’ is a book which showcases H55′s early works.

The idea of interaction in print, chance, accidental beauty, authorship, design ownership, and the ‘absoluteness’ of meaning, have been fundamental ideas that were prevalent in H55′s approach and needed to be represented through the cover design.

Our final solution was to use a sticker book jacket consisting of die-cut removable letters ‘I-W-A-N-T-T-H-E-T-I-T-L-E-O-F-T-H-I-S-B-O-O-K-T-O-B-E’, which allows the title and final cover design to be completed by the reader.

Besides representing H55′s personal ideas, the book cover questions and redefines the relationship between author and reader, and facilitates the collection of many unlikely titles for our publication.
