Typos: the story of a reluctant artwork
203mm x 254 mm. 148 pages. Softback.
Typos is the story of a significant but little known artwork by one of conceptual art's most elusive and unknown practitioners.
“...it’s easier to define what something isn’t than to say definitively what it is. Assuming you can really do either. I’m certainly not sure what Typos is because I think it becomes lots of different things to lots of different people... and on reflection I don’t think you can pin it down to one thing. Does that make sense?”
These are the words of the main protagonist talking about the artwork at the heart of this book. They apply just as well to the book itself, which plays with the distinction between fiction and non-fiction throughout and in doing so raises questions about the nature of fiction and the nature of art.
An intriguing puzzle: a series of Chinese boxes with a mystery attached.

“… a compelling and highly entertaining book and I would recommend it to anyone with a taste for playful, boundary-pushing fiction.”
