Chonosuke Okamura's ABC

An alphabet book: images and descriptions of creatures found in Nagaiwan limestone with an excerpt from Roger Caillois's Writing of Stones. Who knows whether this tumult of triangles inscribed in stone, first brought about by nature and then invented by art, does not contain one of the secret cyphers of the universe?

These ancient, quasi-archaeological layers in the mental hierarchy form a world apart... glimpses of which we get in the dream; their existence is a kind of historic record, which testifies to the facts of mental evolution. —Arthur Koestler.

Type Specimen

Custom monospace type. I can hear a catbird - moved to field corner - a crested bird on a spruce, not enough light at this distance. Goldfinches - a waxwing, but what kind (a cedar, I think) - cowbird is close - birds all over now. I hear a cardinal. A distant plane to the west with sun on it and a line of birds flies past under it - U.F.O.? - 2 of them - I. disappeared. —bpNichol.
