gertrude stein

for the first project in type_tres, we are using gertrude stein’s tender buttons [objects, food, rooms] to create our own codex, exploring formal, alternate ways to format language. i have chosen these ten sections_

1_ a box

2_a chair

3_ this is the dress, aider

4_roastbeef

5_mutton

6_breakfast

7_cake

8_dinner

9_orange

10_rooms

these are the only sections, if i read correctly, that contain *why*

why, why, why. why is an overwhelming word. so much weight is held on what follows up why.

never quit asking why.

//

these ten sections range in length, which will give the book variety while reading. my inspiration for going forward with exploring how i am going to go about piecing together this text, for right now, comes from my, hands down, favorite book house of leaves.
