During the course of Julia Born , we worked with Type on Type, a lecture/essay from Shannon Ebner in which she discusses the work of Hilla and Berndt Becher and pairs it with an excerpt of Gertrude Stein’s Making of Americans.

The book stresses the idea of fragmentation and repetition, and how the content can be rearranged to create something new. Repetition is not the same as being repetitive.

By switching the binding side you get a different book, a different view, a different order, a different rhythm, and a different page count within the same content.
