Alphabet Truck.

Alphabet Truck. Photographs by Eric Tabuchi. Unknown publisher, 2008. The book consists of 26 loose plates in an edition of 500. Also available: limited edition of 26 / 1 for each letter, accompanied with a signed and numbered photograph.

"With this edition of Alphabet Truck, Eric Trabuchi completes a work representing several thousands of kilometers traversed over these past four years. The missing link between The back of trucks passed while driving from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara by John Baldessari and Auchan, and the letters of Claude Closky, Eric Tabuchi pushes the burlesque or compulsive logic of his piece in an almost derisory search for what could constitute its Danish and Japanese origins. Through language (Alphabet) and displacement (Trucks), Alphabet Truck therefore questions, beyond its formal aspects and references, the notions of membership, identity and coeducation. "

I am endlessly interested in "found" typography as well as the incidentals of life.
