This book reconfigures the texts and images from the performance lecture The Bird and the Cup, which was written by Maïder Fortuné and Annie MacDonell, and performed on May 31st, 2014 at the Toronto Reference Library. All the images used in the performance are drawn from the Reference Library¹s Picture Collection.

The Bird and The Cup mines the collection to illustrate a mutating narrative that moves back and forth between two iconic Toronto buildings: the Reference Library and the Robarts Research Library. The Bird and The Cup is a meditation on emptiness and form, image, space, and the conceit of architecture.
