Antenne Books is a distributor for independent publishers. Established in London in 2010, Antenne Books distributes publications on art, photography, design, illustration, theory, writing, fashion and culture.

In the last decade, independent publishing rapidly grew, with many emerging publishers utilising new technologies and the ability to produce books on small scales and at low costs. Antenne Books was realised as a distribution platform against this background, initiated to support the large growth of these emerging publishers, who at the time had limited means to distribute their work using traditional models of book distribution. Antenne Books began by working with publishers Aki Books, Hassla, Nieves, Seems and The Institute of Social Hypocrisy, introducing retailers to publications that had, until then, rarely been available in Europe. Antenne Books now represents publishers from the UK, Europe, USA and Japan and distributes to a wide selection of bookshops and specialist retailers worldwide.

AntenneBooks.com is both an online shop and living archive of the Antenne Books distribution catalogue, which features a wide selection of artist publications, photobooks, magazines, rare and out-of-print publications, monographs and more. Titles are available from leading photobook publishers Loose Joints, Libraryman, Edition Patrick Frey, RVB and Osiris. Also available are titles from major artist book publishers Printed Matter, Apartamento Publishing, Primary Information and InOtherWords and magazines from The Gourmand, Riposte, Real Review, Buffalo Zine, Luncheon and Pleasure Garden.

Bart Groenendaal , The Form And The Frame / De Vorm En Het Venster
£15 Add to cart

Each medium has its own group as the target of its communication. But which position is actually taken and in what sense is this position coloured? At this moment, there are many discussions about what our media landscape is offering. Public broadcasting would no longer disseminate rightist opinion, and every opinion magazine is set aside as leftist by populist commentators. A lack of clarity seems to have emerged concerning the identity of the media and our identification with the media. What is left, what is right, and what is pure reporting? What do we want to engage with?

Each medium has its own group as the target of its communication. In everyday use each medium both has its core readership and incidental consumers. These groups are addressed by an idiosyncratic use of language and image, of visual and textual rhetoric. An editorial board chooses a specific approach and in doing so applies a specific form. That is what editorial design is. Editorial design gives colour and takes positions. Editorial design is politics.
But which position is actually taken and in what sense is this position coloured? At this moment, there are many discussions about what our media landscape is offering. Public broadcasting would no longer disseminate rightist opinion, and every opinion magazine is set aside as leftist by populist commentators. A lack of clarity seems to have emerged concerning the identity of the media and our identification with the media. What is left, what is right, and what is pure reporting? What do we want to engage with?
‘the Form and the Frame’ engages in the construction of media. Onomatopee has assembled editorial boards to investigate the editorial design of specific opinion magazines; to approach their typical usage of text and image. The investigations will include formal aspects such as the relation between image and text, the normative content of the headlines and so on: hard facts. ‘the Form and the Frame’ ignores actual subjects as described in actual news, it does not touch upon actual issues. Through its formal approach it places the normative framework on the agenda.

Research and imagination
The editorial boards comprise visually and textually capable persons with a knowledge of editorial design. The editorial boards will design an article, both visually and textually, formally addressing the values concerned. The article will be widely made accessible. The current lack of clarity in the media landscape will be made tangible and provided with a better insight.

Presentation
Of course the resulting articles, brought about to the public, will also be featured in the Onomatopee project space. Additionally, Onomatopee shows the registrations of the editorial board meetings, thus revealing their considerations and choices to the audience. These meeting will be presented through film recordings and minutes of the meetings, among others. In order to provide this project and the current tension with a historical context - this problem is of all ages - there will be film screenings that consider these tensions in the past.
Through this project, Onomatopee intends to place the communication of our opinion on the agenda. ‘the Form and the Frame’ both triggers our opinion and engage the professional community, especially in the area of communication, politics, graphic design, and media.
The visitors will very much be encouraged to pick up the pen, to take the editorial opportunity to actively edit the framework of this formalist play.

Knowledge development and responsibility
At the end of the project, reflection and additional content will be collected at a public encounter with experts and condensed into a publication. As is common to all Onomatopee publications, this publication will make the render the additional layers of meaning transparent.

    Published by Onomatopee, 95 + 47 pgs, 34 × 25 cm, Softcover: 2 stabled booklets wrapped in one cover, 2010, 978-90-78454-55-7
