Gnommero: Lightness, Quickness, Exactitude, Visibility, Multiplicity

Gnommero is a series of thematic pamphlets that provided space for artists and writers to respond to Italo Calvino’s thoughts on the literary qualities of lightness, quickness, exactitude, visibility, multiplicity and consistency (as published in Six Memos for the Next Millennium, 1988).

Gnommero was also an economic experiment: the pamphlets were produced collectively by the contributors who shared production costs. The copies were then divided equally and distributed at launch events featuring performances and presentations by the contributors.

The five Gnommero pamphlets, one for each memo (excluding ‘Consistency’), have been gathered into a red envelope of Collected Gnommero.

The Gnommero Collection is available here.
