ZHIPENG, Lin. Sour Strawberries.

(Paris): Editions Bressard, 2018.  First edition.  Small quarto.  132 pages.  The volume features images by photographer Lin Zhipeng (a.k.a No. 223) and words by novelist Michel Costagutto. The book’s text has been scrambled into colored blocks while the photos have been censored with a pixelated filter. Costagutto’s encoded text can also be decrypted with a code sheet that comes with the book. But to see the images in their full, uncensored glory, readers have to slice open the book’s uncut pages.  A near fine copy in boards with thin card sleeve.  Published in an edition of 600 copies with a c-print signed by the photographer housed in a sleeve at the end of the volume.  The print measures 13cm by 20cm.
