WITH language we create images. This is a mental process. But sometimes it is also a material, visual process. The visual language symbols we use and the grammatical agreements between those symbols are essentially arbitrary.
The text in this book, by a process of progressive, incremental substitution and transformation, leads the reader, step by step, into the literacy of an unknown, openly-evolving language. This new language operates increasingly in a visual mode as much as a symbolic code. What does all this transformation tell us about our image-making with language?
