Explorations in Indexing

Explorations in Indexing, the limited edition publication published by Index, is the outcome of an open-ended exploration into the idea of indexing. Meant to function partly as a self-promotional device, the book is a kind of visual manifesto for Jonty Valentine and Amy Yalland design studio. They are interested in indexes (as the most ‘motivated’ of semiotic signs) as they are interested in seeing their graphic design work as the outcome of an exploratory, observational or documentary process. This is evident in the (mostly found) visual and written content of the publication, but also in their play with the aesthetics of production; particularly in the binding, and the idiosyncratic material quality of stencil printing.
