A Kind of Ship – Special Editions
Kristina Jurotschkin
“In order to write, I read mostly science fiction books. I call it phenomenological reading. What catches my eye on a page is underlined, cut out and combined with one another until a text originates […] Sometimes there are books in which I cannot find anything, neither ships nor texts that I can make use of. I then fold these books into spaceships.”
Accompanied by a signed copy of the book and a certificate of authenticity, 5b are delighted to offer these unique works by Kristina Jurotschkin as special editions of A Kind of Ship.
