Return To Leptis Magna, 2010
96 pages, 148 x 210 mm, single colour lithography, edition of 500
Return To Leptis Magna is composed entirely from anagrams of the title, revealing streams and webs of words, associations and meanings embedded within the phrase. Written with dream-like logic one theme gives way to another, pushing language to its figurative limits and charting a territory according to the contingencies of spelling. The reference to Leptis Magna and the use of the words as the substance of the book, come from the idea of a sculptural equivalence between the fragmented architecture of the ruined Roman city and letters as the basic units of written language, each capable of constructing multiplicities of new forms.
