The artist juxtaposes her own surreptitiously taken photographs of businessmen on the streets of London, New York, Osaka, and Tokyo with imagery gleaned from the media. All images are horizontally-formatted and folded in the center, so that each 2-page spread is a unique composition formed by two halves of two different images, some "fact" and some "fiction," but all of them retaining the texture produced by their sources, whether they be from television, film, or newspapers. With a pin-striped cover and rubber-banded binding that allows the reader to re-shuffle the images as he or she wishes. -- Printer Matter.
