Okay, calling this a chapbook is a stretch, but it’s more than a leaflet and less than a book. Inside the nifty card wrapper, complete with a printed spine, are two plastic slide cases, one black and one white. Each image is the same, except inverted. As the back explains:
while 2 slides of A may be viewed in many ways, the piece was designed with the intension of viewing both slides simultaneously, black case in front of white.
This piece was something of an accident. I originally intended only one slide, but the printer made an error, forgetting to invert the film as requested – these slides were lino-printed on film, the way plates are made for offset printing. So with two versions (for the price of one!) came two slides. Because there is a space between the two images, their foci are different and the effect surprising.
