A Book of Absolute Whiteness

Ulises CarriĆ³n, “The New Art of Making Books,” Kontexts no. 6-7, 1975

The most beautiful and perfect book in the world is a book with only blank pages, in the same way that the most complete language is that which lies beyond all that the words of a man can say. Every book of the new art is searching after that book of absolute whiteness, in the same way that every poem searches for silence.
