The rather romantic

Notions #2:

Water you thinkin'?

Is here!


And you can make your own copy by following these simple steps:

1. Download/access the file.

The pdf is meant for printing out so the pages won't flow like an ebook.

Trees have been fallen for lesser reasons.

Asking you to print it is my way of sharing the joy of actually making a book with you. ;)


2. Print it out in black and white, A4. Print Settings: "Print on both sides of paper" and "flip on the short edge".

(Click on image to see print setting details.)

3. Fold the stack of print out in half (A5)
4. Put a rubber band around the spine.
5. Tadada! Read and enjoy!

Copies have already been sent to Amsterdam, Spain, and Japan!

Thinkin' about?

上善若水,水善利万物而不争,处众人之所恶, 而攻坚强莫能胜之。
— 《老子》
Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.
— Samuel Taylor Coleridge ("The Rime of the Ancient Mariner")
