* [Asterisk] B.O.O.K. is a newspaper supplement/collateral material published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘B.O.O.K. Basic Object of Knowledge—The Contemporary Book and its Model’. * [Asterisk] B.O.O.K. was conceived in a form of a newspaper supplement and it was designed as an insert for The Straits Times and the Today’s newspapers in Singapore. The design is based on the grids and sizes of both mentioned newspapers. The design concept lies on the possibility of ‘unfolding the grid’ of these newspaper. Hence, columns of the newspaper referred turns into pages in *[Asterisk] supplement. * [Asterisk] B.O.O.K. has been printed in red and black inks — the main newspaper's colours — and in duotone red.
