Abstract:

"Von Ketelhodt has letterpress printed a passage in which [Michel] Butor offered a portrait of a universal library: Itinéraire: les bibliothèques. In the first volume, it is in Butor’s original French and in the second volume, it has been translated into German. Each letter of the alphabet is confined to one transparent page so that, as the pages are turned, a single letter disappears throughout. By the end, only the punctuation remains on the right, with Butor’s text in reverse on the left"--Princeton University Graphic Arts Collection website, viewed August 18, 2020.
