A book based on “conversational phrases” found in Grenville Kleiser’s Fifteen Thousand Useful Phrases. Kleiser’s conversational phrases starting with ‘I’ were taken and placed opposite those starting with ‘you’. The ‘I’ phrases are running in alphabetical order down the verso pages, the ‘you’ phrases down the recto pages. A dialogue is formed from the random meetings of these phrases. Awarded the Special Jury Prize of the Sheffield International Artist’s Book Prize, 2011 and shortlisted for the 2011 ABotM Award, Art Gallery of York University. Edition of 250 numbered copies.
