Cut/copy/paste : fragments from the history of bookwork

Whitney Trettien (Author)
"In Cut/Copy/Paste, Whitney Trettien journeys to the fringes of the London print trade to uncover makerspaces and collaboratories where paper media were cut up and reassembled into radical, bespoke publications. Bringing these long-forgotten objects back to life through hand-curated digital resources, she shows how early experimental book hacks speak to the contemporary conditions of digital scholarship and publishing. With many of Cut/Copy/Paste's digital resources left thrillingly open for additions and revisions, this book reimagines our ideas of publication while fostering a spirit of generosity and inclusivity."--Back cover
