THE MAGIC SQUARE II

This book is a new approach to the first book with the same title. Each of the 16 subdivisions of the Magic Square (see the cover of the first book by clicking the title ) are in this edition printed with transparent colours on a single sheet of acetate. The image on the left shows only half of the 16 subdivisions (also half of the book in a very crude sense, since the real book can not be represented in here). The book is made up with 16 layers of printed acetate, to give a total transparency throughout the book. By turning the pages the colours will mix as the 16 subdivisions come together, some overlapping each other. The book is contained in a perspex box, so that everything becomes a single transparent object.

The book is bound with a transparent plastic spiral.
