This book is a by-product of the badge making process, the perforated pages are the waste
material left after printed paper discs to be made up into badges have been cut out. The
overlay of multiple circle grids reminds me of dot screens and moire patterns, foam
rubber, Dieter Rots books and childrens books with windows letting you peep through to
future pages. Images are minimal and incidental; notes and quantities in the margins,
deleted or misprinted badge art. The differing circle layouts reflect changes in
technologies utilised, earlier designs were photocopied, with random layouts as badge
artwork is slapped on the copier glass, resized and multiplied, Recent lazerprinted designs
use a fixed grid of 35 badge blanks - the optimum amount that fit evenly spaced on an A4
sheet of paper. Its this fixed grid which gives the book its title;
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo - thirty-five
lower case round o's, not oval-shaped capital Os or zeros.

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Special Editions - Japan, Wood, Maps.
I just made a few copies of ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo using special
papers collected from recent badge designs. These books are extremely fragile, half of
each page has been cut away - a nightmare for librarians and archivists - and it is
very fiddly to assemble them as well! Small edition sizes. ( for more information about
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo see the regular edition below )
