This little book, that does not seem to be able to stand upright, is the first book by ARPAÏS du bois that contains no drawings, only text. It contains a bilingual collection of all her writings of the years 2010, 2011 and 2012, torn away from the drawings they were written on, and thus forming a fake volume of poetry. A pastiche, a total examination of how we are drawn to word and language in our daily looking-actions.
A custom die-cut doesn’t allow this peculiar book to stand up straight
Printed on rough Munken paper stock that reminds you of the drawing paper favored by ARPAÏS herself
