About the Book
The skin bears its secrets too. The largest organ in the body, it is constantly being renewed, and in that renewal gathers to itself a long tale of internal and external states. It stands at the threshold between the delicate, messy systems that keep us alive and the coarse, messier impacts of extrinsic conditions. And it bears imprinted upon itself a rendition of the history of both. This is a catalogue of skin, a portrait of the boundary between self and other. Also available as a softcover printed on standard paper.
