Isms is a series of brief quotes, truisms or aphorisms presented in simple forms with containers appropriate to the text. Theodor W. Adorno's quote on thinking is a great fit for the mobius, or endless circle, presentation. The background of the strip and the box exterior are designs created from the parametric description of a mobius strip, both in German and in English. The box exterior is screen printed on textured cover stock in various brown tones. The strip is screen printed in both brown and black on Cheloniidae Rag paper. The colophon insert is toner printed on white bristol with hand applied surface pigment. Thanks goes to Elke McGuire for her assistance with translation and to Lauren Winges for assistance with assembly.
The only true thoughts are those which do not grasp their own meaning. Wahr sind nur die Gedanken, die sich selber nicht verstehen.
