Directions by by Robert Fitterman and Steve Giasson

Via Derek Beaulieu:

For Les Figues Press’ fundraising auction, Fitterman offered something called “Not A Thing;” an offer to collaborate on a conceptual text.

Giasson won the bid and together they came up with a text titled Directions where they chart out the various ways to get from Fitterman’s apartment to Giasson’s … car, ship, plan, bicycle and more.

Published in an edition of 60 handbound copies (30 of which are for sale), each copy has handcut BFKRives covers.

Directions is available for $8 (shipping included).

To order, please email derek@housepress.ca
