The singular “uh” suggests an adaptive whole of a plural “books”. The disparity between logotype (a) and its phonetic “uh” (say out loud: “a cow, a house, a camel”) is suggestive of the publisher’s work with artists, musicians, dancers, readers & audience using conversation as model and means for writing; by way of speech, performance and transcription.
uh books was founded in order to publish F.R.DAVID, and as such to divert income from publisher-distributors’ pockets back to supporting others’ work, through forthcoming books.
As public outcomes of Prospectus: A Year with Will Holder, work was generously supported in 2017 by KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin.
uh books has been made possible with a Paul Hamlyn Foundation award, in 2015, to Will Holder.
