I love this further development of ideas seen in Taken Turns and Conversation. Figures unraveling, maps and directions, a wandering narrative: all buoyant and vivid. I'm interesting in the textured surface of the book, looking like old distressed paper; it adds sensuality to the experience of seeing the book online, which I think would be lost when reproduced as an actual book with images of aged paper. Online, the texture is available to my imagined touch, because more removed from reality.
