The placement of the ink on this paper was made into a physical form by the co-ordination of muscles and such organic machinery in conjunction with other human-made tools of significantly diminished elegance. These tools include a box of somewhat complicated switches connected to a bulging, glowing sheet of glass. This sheet of glass is ever changing, the bright, colourful patterns flicker at a reassuring frequency. Quick, quick. It was output onto thin sheets of almost inert trees. These trees have been refined past the point of recognition for the sole purpose of bringing more synaptic doilies and knit-wear into this fine place we love. The letters appearing on these pages have important names. They are called Trajan, Dante, by lads & lasses, the world over.
