Call Ampersand Response

Here's a little book project I've been meaning to mention for a while. Call Ampersand Response is a wonderfully odd collection of oblique images exchanged via email by Canadian artists Michael Dumontier and Micah Lexier over a period of several months. Like a visual game of Chinese whispers, each successive image suggested another. The book functions like a weirdly circular visual narrative loop, both beginning and ending with the same image. I've deliberately dislocated a few of my favourite images which will hopefully entice you to seek out a copy of the book to view their associated images. It's wonderfully engaging stuff. Oh and before I forget, Michael also curates the rather fine Stopping Off Place blog which can be viewed here and is well worth a few minutes of your time.
