The book as instrument : Stéphane Mallarmé, the artist's book, and the transformation of print culture

Stephane Mallarme (1842-98) was a French Symbolist poet, theorist, and teacher whose ideas and legendary salons set the stage for twentieth-century experimentation in poetry, music, theater, and art. A canonical figure in the legacy of modernism, Mallarme was also a lifelong champion of the book as both a literary endeavor and a carefully crafted material object.

  • "In The Book as Instrument, Anna Sigridur Arnar explores how this object functioned for Mallarme and his artistic circle, arguing that the book became a strategic site for encouraging a modern public to actively partake in the creative act, an idea that informed later twentieth-century developments such as conceptual and performance art. Arnar demonstrates that Mallarme was invested in creating radically empowering reading experiences and the diverse modalities he proposed for both reading and looking anticipate interactive media prevalent in today's culture. In describing the world of books, visual culture, and mass media of the late nineteenth century, Arnar touches upon an array of themes that continue to preoccupy us in our own moment, including speculations on the future of the book. Enhanced by gorgeous illustrations, The Book as Instrument is sure to fascinate anyone interested in the ever-vibrant experiments that shape the multisensory pleasures of reading. --Book Jacket."@en
