A backwards-forwards book combining photography and poetry, Amorphous Writings can be read from both directions without the minimalist cover setting a preference. One direction offers the photography as a storyline, the other the text. Meticulous design in both, and the red highlight colour create together an airy rhythm where spreads intensively packed and spacious alternate.
