6.8 × 21.8 × 0.6 cm

Tom Prochaska’s PLL Reading No. 1 is a personalized, visual retelling of Flaubert’s Bouvard and Pécuchet. Different from a reader, a bound collection of related texts that aim to give either a comprehensive or particular view, this reading evidences a specific reading or journey through a collection of related texts: the Personal Libraries Library. The Personal Libraries Library is a subscription-based lending library located in Portland, Oregon. Currently, the PLL is creating mirror collections of the personal libraries of Maria Mitchell, Robert Smithson, Italo Calvino, Jorge Luis Borges, and Anne Spencer.
