Book Instruction 1

XXL Color Books
Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster

Adapt your favorite book into a XXL size color book:
.  Enlarge the original book ten times (or 20 times); if the book is 12 x 18 cm. – it will become 1.20m x 1.80 m big.
.  Divide the amount of pages by 10 (or by 20); 120 pages will become 12 pages, 265 pages will become 26 pages and so on … (or 13 pages if divided by 20)
.  Pick up one or several colors in relation to the content of the book, for example, black pages for ‘Le Parfum de la Dame en Noir’ by Gaston Leroux.
.  Use material that can be put on the floor like carpet or fabric, soft material which can be used for furniture or domestic needs.
.  Attach the pages together on the left side – it should be possible to open the pages and turn them like a real book.
.  Place the colour book on the floor. Open it – There are so many ways to enter a book, you can also seat and slee and dream on it
