“A more thorough lifting of layers reveals linguistic, artistic, metaphysical issues that are as many and various and essential as those in a text by Aristotle. . . . The field of collage, of color and line . . . releases outbursts of words that find themselves in an altogether new syntactical space; and there, like notes, they sing a painted music.” (William Glass - Artforum)
“One of the most winning and witty artistic experiments of recent times.” (Washington Post)
“A wonderful entertainment . . . full of humor, visual invention, and the peculiar poignancy of unnoticed meanings in the very lay and spelling of printed words.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

This was way ahead of its time in relation to the altered book art of today. Delighted to see a new edition out --- many readers have "grown" with the author these past 30-some-odd years since the first edition.
370 pages of full page art in full color, signature-sewn (lays flat), printed on heavy glossy stock.
There is also an app for this but I prefer the visceral enjoyment of fondling and leafing through the pages of this diary-sized book.
