A visual essay that the artist created by combining various images linked by the theme of backward shelving, that is the defunctionalizing practice consisting of positioning books inside the bookcases with the backs facing the wall and the counter-back or fore edge towards the observer. It is a trend that has exploded in recent decades within furniture department stores to avoid copyright problems or complaints for surreptitious advertising. It then spread as a certain home decor fashion leaning towards a superficial minimalism. But in reality it has a much older and rooted history in publishing, as Antonini tells us visually in this publication.

Federico Antonini (1985) is a designer, researcher and book collector. At the centre of his investigation, the relationship between conceptual art and book-making, the death of the page as a cultural object, and the (media) specificities of (re)production means.
