Library of Unpublished Books

A collection of unpublished manuscripts, abandoned novels, private notebooks and new writing was made from open public submissions. Inspired by a fictional repository for unpublished books featured in The Abortion by Richard Brautigan, the project provided a platform for texts, which fall outside the concerns of commercial publishing markets.

 

Three exhibitions presented the unpublished texts for others to read: 

 

Mobile Library was formed of a collection of personal travel diaries and maps displayed in a mobile unit at Lambeth Libraries.

 

Library of Prototypes, commissioned by Measure, took place at the Isokon, an iconic Modernist building, prior to its redevelopment. The collection of unpublished works featured utopian designs, artists' sketchbooks and architects' plans.

 

Day of the Unread was a varied collection of unpublished texts and artists' books presented at Waterstone's Piccadilly & The House Gallery, Southwark. 

 

Library of Unpublished Books lead to the initiation of Library of Unwritten Books, co-produced with Sam Brown.
