Announcing "Invalid Format"November 16, 2011
Our first book, Invalid Format: An Anthology of Triple Canopy, Volume 1, is now available for pre-order. Designed in collaboration with Project Projects, the book is at once an archive of Triple Canopy's widespread publishing activities and a translation into print of projects that originally appeared in other forms. This inaugural volume of Invalid Format includes artist projects and literary work published in the first year of Triple Canopy's existence, documentation of public programs, and a sampling of foundational correspondence. In form and content, the book explores how works produced for the screen might fully inhabit the page. Consider Invalid Format a new design for reading, the book as content-management system.
Invalid Format will be published at least annually, and will be available at select bookshops worldwide as well as on Triple Canopy's website. The initial volume of Invalid Format includes artist projects and literary work published in the first year of Triple Canopy's existence, documentation of public programs, and a sampling of foundational correspondence. Contributors include Lene Berg, Joseph Clarke, Rivka Galchen, Adam Helms, Sheila Heti, Dan Hoy, the International Necronautical Society, Craig Kalpakjian, Jon Kessler, Wayne Koestenbaum, Rachel Mason, Amir Mogharabi, Rachel Owens, Ed Park & Rachel Aviv, the Poetic Research Bureau, John Powers, Emily Richardson & Iain Sinclair, Michael Robinson, and Diane Williams.
