Reading books that don’t exist

Reading books that don’t exist

Last year I threw a (very well-attended, it has to be said) imaginary party round at my metaphysical pad where we discussed books that didn’t exist outside other works of fiction.

Now, as is often the case with fictional things, these imaginary books have leaked into the real world, courtesy of the “illustration collective” INK.

Using the Invisible Library blog as their jumping off point, INK – Chloe Regan, Rachel Gannon and Fumie Kamijo, based at the Royal College of Art in London – have actually created volumes based on 40 of the imaginary books listed on the site.

Described as “part aesthetic adventure and part metafictional exercise”, the INK initiative, in conjunction with the literary foundation Real Fits, is being hosted for the next month at the capital’s Tenderpixel Gallery.
