A collection comprised of the paratextual sections that support the structure of the book. Removed from their context, the new compositions transform these pages into forms. The repetition shifts the peritexts from the periphery to the main stage, giving new attention to the text's shape and texture. The examples converged from 200 books were picked through a random selection system from the shelves of the Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design Library. This fact unifies this collection in terms of context. In all other regards, the content of the books becomes irrelevant to the study. All reproductions remain faithful to the original scale and order.
