About the Book
Scanned images from digital version of "Theatrum Instrumentorum et Machinarum" by Jacques Dauphinois Besson of 1578. They are taken from the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, Digital Edition, 1999. The scans are the verso pages of the book which are the imprinted ghostly images on the blank verso pages. The result is a meditation on the physical nature of the book as object.
