An Encyclopedia of Everything

An Encyclopedia of Everything is a collection of small books which will form part of an exhibition Installation to be shown in Durban (South Africa) in October 2014. The goal is to collect, swap and make 500 (preferably more) books. It’s about everything because, lets face it – is there any topic which has not been covered by a book artist?
The small volumes are A6 (postcard size) when closed (A5 when opened), boasting hard/strong covers. Interest has been shown by other international galleries to show this installation. This will obviously entail further organization and preparation, but for the moment, the first showing will be at the KZNSA Gallery, Durban, South Africa.
