“I found a book in the proof section of ‘Any Amount of Books,’ a second hand bookshop in Charing Cross Road in London. However, with a closer look I could see that it wasn't a proof at all. The previous owner or author had photocopied an entire book, including cover, and bound it with a plastic comb binder. It was a facsimile book.
‘Remains’ is my attempt to take this book one step further towards being a book by printing the pages back to back and perfect binding it. At the same time, it takes one a step further away as the pages have been reformatted to fade as the reader progresses.”
