The History of the/my Wor(l)d
by Johanna Drucker

"Drucker's autobiography becomes a kind of hypertext, a set of possible verbal-visual paths that suggest further possibilities in the writing of her story." - Marjorie Perloff, Harvard Library Bulletin

A striking alternative to the familiar telling of historical events, Drucker's account of mythic and major events in the course of western civilization marches roughshod over received traditions. The combination of typographic innovation, visual puns and linguistic play are unique elements of her style. A richly suggestive work interweaving official history and individual memory.

Based upon the Druckwerk original letterpress edition (1990). Offset in two colors, printed at SoHo Services by Michael Chan under the eye of Anne Noonan and staff. Hardback with dustjackets printed letterpress, in several colors, by the author.
