the initial publication of
Friday, February 22rd, 6 ­ 8 p.m.

The Play Book grew out of the 2007/8 theme ³Play² at Proteus Gowanus. Beyond
a catalog, it is a limited edition book to be played with, a compilation of
artist-designed games ready to cut, fold, paste and assemble; images of play
past and present; pages of anagrams and palindromes; ponderings on the
meaning of play; conundrums by Lewis Carroll; and a short play by Gertrude
Stein. The book includes a match game, a word game, a word maze, a geometric
puzzler, paper dolls, an automaton, a miniature card deck, a flipbook and a
toy theater. Come play along!

Last chance to purchase the Play Book for $30 at the book launch. $40

elegant, creamy off-white.

Proteotypes are publications that grow out of Proteus Gowanus exhibits and
programs, with particular emphasis on publications that are designed to
challenge the notion of what a book is; that emphasize the book as aesthetic
object; that link art to disparate disciplines; and that juxtapose seemingly
incongruous ideas to create new important meanings.
