A set of two books as one title: The first book in the two-volume edition entitled Substrata not only presents the idea that interaction within a relationship can allay it, but also how transient dormant periods can be. The cracked terrain and the ruggedness of the horizon is relative to the current condition of the relationship. The history of the bond is referred to by the substratum which plateaus when commerce functions more smoothly. The accordion-sewn-to-concertina structure was chosen because of the mountainous quality created by the book when it is opened. The second book in the two-volume edition uses fingerprints as a metaphor for an impression that is left on someone after such an experience. The thickness and weight of the book corresponds to the encumbrance one bears from having to live with imperfection.
