26 Xs by 26 artists 26 artists, designers and writers were invited to contribute an X for a print edition for the publishing project space X Marks the Bökship.

The 26 different Xs become as individual through the artists’ interpretation of the letter than as if they were 26 different graphemes. Even using a standard alphabet the same words can end up being used again and again. This single letter repetition actually creates a variety to what is said and how an idea is represented rather than a restriction. The XALPHABET can be read and understood as individual Xs or collectively as a one-letter alphabet set containing the ingredients for a concrete poem.

The X belongs to many people: mark makers, sign writers, mathematicians and musicians. An X can represent a letter, a number, a symbol, a sign, a pattern or hidden treasure.

The X has been adopted by the subversive as a symbol of protest. A strike. A NO. And also as an affirmation. A signature. A vote. A YES.
X ruptures the system and then fills in the space it creates.
