Inscription is an exciting new publication featuring work by practitioners – book artists, printmakers and writers – alongside academic discussion. Founded in 2020, its focus is not just on the meanings and uses of the codex book, but also the nature of writing surfaces, and the processes of mark-making in the widest possible sense: from hand-press printing to vapour trails in the sky; from engraved stones to digital text.
Inscription is both a journal of cutting-edge research and a playful and innovative multimedia artefact. Each edition has a guest artist-in-residence, poet-in-residence & writer-in-residence. It is issued in a limited edition of 500 by the experimental publishing imprint Information as Material.
Calls for submissions are made annually. Previous calls are archived here.
