A collection of used book pages from found novels attached through the use of a sewing machine, bound, stitched and glued to a hard back cover. The cover is made from suede patches with the title screen printed on to it.

The photography evidences the sequence of this remaking. The random use of the pages makes any narrative flow impossible.
