Book of Pages: 2000–2020

Although the first version of Book of Pages was written and illustrated almost a decade earlier, it was published in 2000. The book’s illustrations are black-and-white line art. To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their publication, here is how the pages might have looked had they been in colour, thanks to Jiriki’s friend Claudia.

Looking through the glass on page 11. After failing to experience any of the anticipated sensations of flight on page 9 (“Flight”), Jiriki seems to be standing in the air.

This is left for the illustration to tell: the text, meanwhile, riffs on the oddity of habitually not seeing things that are there.
