> both protect and expose. Both can be used intentionally to layer text and

> meaning. Translucency in particular is seductive in its beauty but needs to
> be used purposefully in order to add to and not detract from the impact of
> a book.

> learn from their effects. We will explore the potential of a variety of
> transparent and translucent materials, including but not limited to
> Japanese and Western tissues and papers, mylar, rubylith, amberlith,
> treated acetate, frosted drafting film, paper vellum, and fibreglass mesh.
> Each of these materials has its own technical challenges which we will
> address.

> and books to examine.
