What would the Sophia say if she sent out texts? This handbound book of 15 one-sided pages was printed on archival, satin paper, library bound with a hard spine and silver and black endpapers. Black cloth and decorative, silver and antique laid paper adorn the cover. The book has been bound to resemble the clamshell style of cell/mobile phone, with the spine at the top. Flip to open and read.
