The book is bound on two edges with the cover page reading: "Tear this book to read. Follow instructions as they turn up.” Each book in the edition has its pages randomly shuffled and as readers navigate the book, they find some instructions impossible to follow due to pages being glued and sewn together. Confronted with this, readers must accept their inability to comply and grapple with the resulting feelings. The title Present is a pun playing with the idea of the wrapping paper like pages, and the idea of being present (a gift I wish someone could give me wrapped in a neat box). Edition of 25 unique books.
