I've been approached by a friend to design a print version of a blog he kept as part of an art/research project on the culture/dynamics of his suburb a while back.
The idea is to not produce a finished, bound book, but to display a stacks of individual pages (up to 200) on a long bench in a gallery space, for people to collect, assemble, and take home their own copy.
(Here are some photos from a previous showing of the project, in which the blog was just copied, unstyled, into an MS Word doc)
Does anyone know of any similar projects (insofar as adapting online content to print)? I haven't sat down to plan this out properly, but issues of how to deal with hyperlinks, post metadata, comments etc immediately come to mind.
Also, does anyone know if it might be possible to convince a book printer to deliver stacks of unbound pages instead of finished bound copies?
