How might a book make sound - how might it speak? The structure and text of this book explore how the materials of the book relate to the mechanics of making sound and how the written word relates to the spoken word. But who does the speaking and what is the source of the creative inspiration? How far can we analyze the creative process before we are left holding nothing?
