It has this specific weight, the deep blue leather bookcover, the simplicity of the design. Every single nuance evoked in the paper has a perfect tactility, watercolor or crayon or chalk structures seem to literally lay on top of the paper, as if your fingers could erase it by inattention. It is a hard but humorous pile of comments and links, positioning the author as a critic observer as well as a self-reflective sensitive member of society. This book was often described as a visual bundle of poems, a book to keep close to you, to wander through at particular moments.
