Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea presents a selection of books designed by John Morgan over the past twenty years. The work is bracketed as the exhibition title implies between the earliest project, a series of prayer books for the Church of England; to the most recent, Usylessly, a simulacrum of the 1922 edition of James Joyce’s Ulysses. The display charts Morgan’s path through both the sacred and the profane with a series of mise-en-scéne.
John Morgan is the founder of John Morgan studio, co-founder of Abyme type foundry and Professor of design, typography and book art at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
His most recent book Usylessly was published in October 2021.

VOLUMES is a non-profit organization founded in Zurich in 2013 and formed by Anne-Laure Franchette, Gloria Wismer and Patrizia Mazzei. Operating in different venues and formats (festival and mini-fairs, exhibitions, symposiums, bookstores etc.), the collective organizes events highlighting the facets of art publishing and the hybrid practices that are related to it. Since its creation in 2013, VOLUMES has built up an archive of art books and zines, activated in the form of curated selections, presented online and in exhibitions or events. For PAGES, VOLUMES proposes an exhibition in the form of an interactive reading zone presenting the research carried out in its archive over the last few months.
