Our third book of found texts – Word Disco – is a sequel to Ken Cockburn’s Overheard/Overlooked (2011) and Overlooked/Overheard (2015).
As with the last book, Second Year Graphic Design students at the School of Art & Design were asked to keep their ears open last summer. When they returned to University, the texts were collated and selected by Ken Cockburn then typeset by Barrie Tullett.
Visually it’s quite a departure from the previous books in the series, and from Barrie’s typographic work in general – the texts being typeset, distorted on photocopiers then edited, coloured and composed in Photoshop.
The book has contributions from Lee Flatman, Ryan Forrest, Megan Favell, Ashley Godber, Holly Humphries, Joshua Jepson and Ashley Gillott.
