A book about variation in nature and the play of individual and type. Every page has an outline of an oak leaf laser printed onto translucent paper. As you read, you can see several leaves ahead and several leaves back. There is similarity and variation. What interests me is that although each leaf is different, humans have decided that the tree is a type. Furthermore, this type is seen as a variation of a larger type, and so on. Bound in a Japanese ledger binding with hemp twine.
TextsBy “texts” I mean words in a particular context such that the sense of the words is partly dependent on the context. If you take these words out of their bodies then they do not mean the same things.
