Drum Leaf binding with handmade papers, PVC cover with red buffalo leather spine. Typeset on a Macintosh computer; Printed on a letter press from photo polymer plates.  Limited numbered edition signed by author and binder.   The ideas and opinions expressed in this book came from a thrift store. Each phrase was once a source of guidance to the now-anonymous people who underlined them in numerous self-help books. Later the books were tossed out. I collected these highlighted gems of wisdom and strung them together somewhat haphazardly to create an entirely new text.  The author collected visited thrift stores and collected passages from self-help books that other people underlined and then compiled the sentence fragments into the text for ‘In Other Words’. The result is a disjointed yet cohesive “self-help” text.

In Other Words

Designed, illustrated and printed by Lili Hall

Signed by Author/  No. 4 of 8

178mm x 152mm x 51mm

Drum Leaf binding with handmade papers, PVC cover with red buffalo leather spine. Typeset on a Macintosh computer; Printed on a letter press from photo polymer plates.  Limited numbered edition signed by author and binder.   The ideas and opinions expressed in this book came from a thrift store. Each phrase was once a source of guidance to the now-anonymous people who underlined them in numerous self-help books. Later the books were tossed out. I collected these highlighted gems of wisdom and strung them together somewhat haphazardly to create an entirely new text.  The author collected visited thrift stores and collected passages from self-help books that other people underlined and then compiled the sentence fragments into the text for ‘In Other Words’. The result is a disjointed yet cohesive “self-help” text.
