The multiple lives of a blank book is a cross-cultural tale of bookness, blankness and multiplicity, bringing the cinematic genre of documentary fiction to the printed page.

50 contributors were provided with a blank book to use as a symbol, tool or prop for conducting and documenting experimental enactments. The resulting story – a sequence of deeds, episodes, tableaus and vignettes – seeks to reveal as much about the zeitgeist as it does about the book.
