The Age of Wire and String

The Age of Wire and String

The Age of Wire and String is a classic of innovative fiction. The novel is a handbook for surviving in a strange new world both like and unlike our own, one in which language has undergone a surreal revolution and words can no longer be trusted. In approaching the text Catrin Morgan's intention is to make images that introduce a similar revolution to the idea of illustrated fiction. These new images are documentation of a vision of the world conjured by the novel.
