Something in nothing

Specific Ideas

The "box set" edition of Something in nothing is a custom, screen-printed 3-ring binder containing the complete series of five booklets showcasing the photography of Adam Swift Lucas, published from 2019 to 2021. The booklets are spaces to archive ideas, sketches, and studies. The content is mostly observations and impressions of the everyday that attempt to spotlight the something in nothing. Typeset in gc16 by Mads Wildgaard.

While the issues and binder were produced under the NOS Press imprint, by the time the complete set was ready to be published — on the occasion of the 2022 Detroit Art Book Fair —  NOS Press had become Specific Ideas.
