What role will self-publishing play in the 21st century? Will the new kind of book printing develop to become an alternative to electronic communication? How is it possible to distinguish subversive gestures and New Biedermeier? NO-ISBN – On Self-publishing investigates extraordinary books that withdraw from the international book trade. A register contains 1,800 items that have three features in common: they are recent, printed on paper, and circulate without an ISBN. This is the first Arabic edition produced within the context of the exhibition How to maneuver: Shape-shifting texts and other publishing tactics, with the support of Warehouse421, Abu Dhabi.
