Salt Lake City: Book Arts Studio, University of Utah, 2002. 64mo. (4)ff. One of 24 copies. A clever meditation on the ephermerality of the ways in which a reader encounters a text, juxtaposing the printed word, digital texts, and the scheme of language itself. Bound in two floppy disc covers with metal rings, which contained, at the time of printing, the texts of some of the most renowned works in history, The New Testament, Tao Te Ching, and the Tempest, among them. The discs have begun to break down, and with them, the encoded books, at which point the interior text, which describes the books on the discs, will be all that remains. Sealed with printed paper band. Fine. Item #30224

Price: $675.00
