A blog dedicated to the collaborative process of designing and building THE WORLD AS TEXT, a temporary summer reading room and exhibition of artists books (June 16 - August 12, 2011) at the Center for Book and Paper Arts (CBPA) at Columbia College Chicago.

The design collaboration, led by artist and builder John Preus, took place May 23 - June 3 at CBPA, with site visits to the Dorchester House and Recycle Plus. The reading room is built from materials collected in a 14 foot moving truck, from Recycle Plus.
