The Story of a Young Gentleman

Elisabeth Tonnard
Artists' Books
13 × 20 × 2.3 cm

An ultra-short story that in defiance of literary taste and publishing conventions manifests itself as a novel-sized book, even containing the entire text of Tolstoy’s War and Peace. It brings to mind a fly thinking it might drive a car, a raindrop imagining it will drown a city, a particle of dust readying itself to make you stumble. Shortlisted in the 2012 Artists’ Books of the Moment Award, Art Gallery of York University.
