Reading Revolutionaries

John Sparagana & Reto Geiser

Reading Revolutionaries


A unique publication by artist John Sparagana and designer/ architectural historian Reto Geiser. Reading Revolutionaries is a meditation on the book, on reproduction and mediation, and the relationship between image and text. Extrapolated from a single artwork by Sparagana, which is divided evenly between 170 pages and transformed from color to a rich black and white, it is a strangely compelling "read," an abstract paperback. As Geiser says in his essay: "This small publication is an experiment in how we value, prepare, disseminate, and consume information and, hopefully, serves as an impetus for further reflection upon the ever-changing nature of reading and visual experience."
