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








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.
