> DESCRIPTION


A re-imagining of 1969’s “Vogue’s Book of Etiquette and Good Manners.” 
The original book is taken apart and scanned using several machines at one time to create an exact copy of the original text. Using Optical Character Recognition, or OCR, Nichols replaced every fourth word with “pussy.” The result is less a book and more a work of Art -- something that could not and should not be read cover to cover, but enjoyed as a prank or gag.
