The box set edition of Something in nothing is a custom, screen-printed 3-ring binder containing the complete series of five issues, featuring the photography of Adam Swift Lucas along with found images and text excerpts. Each issue was published bi-annually from 2019 to 2021. The booklets are spaces to archive ideas, sketches, and studies. The content is mostly observations and impressions of the everyday that attempt to spotlight the something in nothing.

While the issues and binder were produced under the NOS Press imprint, by the time the complete set was ready to be launched — on the occasion of the 2022 Detroit Art Book Fair —  NOS Press had become Specific Ideas. The publication, published in a liited edition of 50 copies, won The Society for Typographic Arts 100 award in 2022.
