Whispering between the rules.

This two word existing book contains 1416 pages of bible paper. The two words I used are in dutch: regel & fluister. In english: rule & whisper. My book is based on the full layout of an environmental law book. I examined the law book and figured I wanted to make something similar but than with the purpose of law. So I completely made a copy of the layout by hand but than replaced all the words with rule and some words with whisper.

Our whole society is build around justice and rules. Sometimes rules are vague and not every rule applies on everyone. Many times people bend the rules, to stick to it but still get their way without breaking the law. I call it whisper. We whisper between the rules, we whisper between the lines that are set for us to follow.

As a reaction on our society and the book of law I made this book. Every page of the 1416 is unique and filled with those words, different fonts, different sizes and different weights, then printed on 60 grams bible paper to give it a heavy feeling and eventually bounded by hand to make it compleet.
