David Paton, 2015. Speaking in Tongues; speaking digitally | digitally speaking, Deluxe edition of 6.

This book consists of a double sided accordion-fold open-spine binding with book’s head and tail edges painted black. The book is divided into two chapters:’Speaking Digitally’ and ‘Digitally Speaking’. The binding allows the book to be opened in any combination of pages, from a double page spread to a range of pages from each of the two chapters simultaneously or even in its entirety. The book is accompanied by a 15:42 minute video on a flash drive of two pairs of hands from which the book was derived. The reader is encouraged to view the video whilst reading the book so as to reflect upon differences in tempo and duration in each of the two narratives.
