From the short story «A Joke» by Anton Chekov, a book was created with pages of different formats and paper grades. These differences serve to represent the different narratives present in the book and allow several readings simultaneously: the author’s original text (typographically composed in white paper pages), the historical and social framing of Russia at the time (composed of news documentary clippings from newspapers and photographs, and, in larger pages, biographical notes on the author’s life and work, composed of calligraphed and illustrated notes.
