Scott McCarney: "One of a series of alphabet books that rely on physical action (cutting paper and turning pages) to create letterforms unique to the book form. The fore-edge of each page is cut into geometric forms from black, white, and cream toned duplex stock (two sheets of different colored paper laminated together). The conception of the series and design of inkless alphabets was inspired by the limitations and possibilities of material and process. … This books was produced during a residency at the Institute of Electronic Arts."
