Production Narrative

by J. Drucker

Critical Analysis

by E. Rettberg

Design Features

graphical: The human figures on the versos are modified in a blurry way that suggests a dreamlike state, while the rectos are printed in a state much closer to the photographic originals.

openings: Each verso page features a segment of a letter from a man to a woman with whom he is breaking up; each recto tells part of the story of how he came to breaking up with her by way of the lyrics of "24 Hours from Tulsa."
