Müller Josh 1–5 (2014) is a self-published artist’s book developed collaboratively by artist Josh Müller (DE/AT) and typographer Nik Thoenen (CH/AT). The project contains documentary material from five individual bodies of work, however without providing an overview — nor a review — of Müller’s artwork. While two of the five slim volumes expand on or parallel to already existing works the other three elaborate on non-shown long-term documentary and archival projects from 2001–2013. As a whole, the book engages with the generation of narrative. Far from being a fragmented linear reproduction of existing works, the publication demands montaging as an unbound collage of the literary and the visual, enhancing the experiences of cross- and close reading. The thin paper contains wood and will yellow with age. Printed in an edition of 300 + 50 on Munken paper 70g/m2, perforated and boxed.
