‘Proof’ was an exhibition from the Publisher Hub, a multi-disciplinary publishing space supported by Winchester School of Art and run by Graphic Arts staff and students. This exhibition was a snapshot of work produced within the Publisher Hub since its conception in 2015. ‘Proof’ ran alongside the ‘The Book, The Object’ exhibition currently running at the Special Collections Gallery and nicely complemented the more historical aspects of book production and book culture on display there.
The Publisher Hub aims to provide opportunities for the examination of ideas and practices related to the future of publication and book design and the space is equipped with production facilities such as a saddle stitcher and Risograph printer and hosts workshops to help students get the most out of this equipment. Publisher Hub also hosts lectures, reading, discussions and technical demonstration from publishers, book designers and artists in residence.
The exhibition ran until 20th April 2016.
