198 Wood Joints
Architectural Notes, 2019
198 Wood Joints is an inventory. The book gathers many examples, from ordinary to rare, of wood joints presented in the form of axonometries. 198 Wood Joints is primarily a technical manual designed for woodworkers. But it is also a conceptual object that questions the very nature of the inventory in order to erode its foundations and undermine its reassuring objectivity. It is this collapse that the author describes in the afterword of the book.
The first edition of this book was published in 2014 and quickly ran out of print, therefore in 2019 it was decided to republish an updated edition as the first publication of the newly established publishing house Architectural Notes.
