The Art of Google Books (where the images above were nabbed) describes itself this way: The adversaria of Google Books: captured mark of the hand and digitization as rephotography. The images on the site drive me batty with their fertile, funny, accidental and purposeful tracking of knowledge and opinion and the romantic quirks of books as objects. I love it, is what I’m saying. I love the finger condoms of the book scanners and the amber-blue zebra feedback of moire patterns. I love the combination of water stains and worm holes and digital hiccups, and the way the original content persists with a straight face.
