Pair of bar magnets [L], Growing Up: The story of how we become alive, are born and grow up by Karl de Schweinitz, 1930 [R]: "The book has this wonderful title, which I loved just because it represents the ultimate A to B — birth to death. It connects the theme of A to B to our lives. I bought it at this amazing curated bookstore Monkey’s Paw in Toronto, where quite a few of the books in show are from. Most of the time I’ll buy them for the binding or the typeface or the cover and never even look at what’s inside; I bought this one for the cover, specifically for this show.”
