This exhibition catalog presents works by three artists. The idea for the book was to create the same kind of circulation between the artists' works as in the exhibition. To put the emphasis on the visual qualities of the work, all the pictures were printed on one-sided glossy paper stock without any text, while all the essais and captions were printed on the other, uncoated side of the pages. Once bound, glossy double pages alternated with uncoated double pages, except for the English translations at the end, which were printed on an uncoated paper signature with a different spot color.

The almost generic cover design refers to the title and paper of the cover is of the same paper stock as administrative folders.
