CCA Singles

Publication, April 2020

CCA Singles are short printed one-offs that present one voice, one object, or one event. Ranging from raw source material to edited topical reflections, they propose intimate contact with ideas generated or collected at the CCA.

The design of the series, conceived by NORM, defines three standard sizes and templates that simplify layout, printing, and binding, while accommodating a wide diversity of content—from the reproduction of large size image files to a straightforward text layout.

In order to accommodate the different nature of publication materials, CCA Singles can be small (10.8 x 16.2 cm), medium (15.4 x 23.1 cm), or large (20 x 30 cm). The three sizes have the same aspect ratio (width to height).

Published titles include: Stefano Graziani, Documents from Gordon Matta-Clark’s personal library; Robert J. Kett, Prospects Beyond Futures: Counterculture White Meets Red Power; Esra Akcan, Abolish Human Bans: Intertwined Histories of Architecture; and the volumes featuring the Meanwhile in Japan conversations with Itsuko Hasegawa, Hiroshi Hara, and Toyo Ito organized as part of the CCA c/o Tokyo program.

CCA Singles are distributed by the CCA Bookstore and an international network of collaborating bookstores. The series is supported by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
