An intriguing cover with its short black stripes. These are repeated in the interior, where it becomes apparent that together with two more pages of shapes and shorter stripes they merge to form the title – once you hold the pages up so that the light shines through them.

A nice introduction to the work of Andrés Ramírez Gaviria, which includes much by way of visual and acoustic experiment. These experiments are constructed on the premise that, these days, light, sound, images and text can all be translated into each other.

The game with the stripes is repeated several times in the book, which is printed entirely in black. There is a great deal of pictorial matter, some of which consists of exciting black-and-white patterns placed in a nice rhythm on both matt and glossy paper. The text and publishing details are at the back. A lucid little book that carries conviction in its seeming simplicity.
