To Young Man or Woman in Search of Ideal II.

To Young Man or Woman in Search of Ideal II. By Sara Elgerot / Rare Autumn, 2011. 12pp., b/w illustrations throughout, 14,8x21cm. Bibliophile edition & normal edition, which is limited to an edition of 20 (hand-signed and numbered).

This book centers around extracts from the chapter 'To A Young Man or Woman in Search of the Ideal II' from the book 'Search-Light Letters' by Robert Grant (you can read the entire book on Project Gutenberg).

Some sentences have been enlarged, distorted, taken out of context and given more/less/different importance and/or intent than in the original text. The pages have been distressed, manipulated and graphic elements have been introduced.

The materials used are inkjet on paper, with recycled plastic and recycled paper elements. Folded and staple-bound.

A modified edition of 'To Young Man or Woman in Search of Ideal II' was distributed as part of the Bibliophile project at Spike Island Artists' Book and Zine Fair on Saturday 8 October, 2011.

UPDATE: This book can now be found in the Bower Ashton Library Artists' Books collection, the Centre for Fine Print Research Artists' Books Collection, and the LCC Library Zine Collection.
