As an incomplete history of the communities that exist in online forums and illegal software sharing, this sarcastic and frustrated book is a gesture of solidarity to anyone who has ever placed on hold.

Tracing The Path Of A Ray Of Light combines the digital photographic images of two books, Computer Images (Time Life, 1991) and General Electric’s Filmamatic Processor (1975) service manual. The former recounts formative technologies of computer images, while the latter pertains to an apparatus that develops traditional x-ray film stock. The digital photographs of the two books are merged via digital opacity filters that simulate the material nature of physical, printed images.
WILLIAM MORRIS' KELMSCOTT PRESS
As part of bookEnd I digitally produced several books from the Kelmscott Press of William Morris. Titles include News from Nowhere, Sidonia The Sorceress, Atalanta in Calydon, and The Story of the Glittering Plain. These digital editions use the original page designs of Morris' printed versions--with high resolution detail--and the original font that was painstakingly researched in the collection of the Morgan Library in New York. Read them how the authors and publishers intended them to be seen.
If you've never had the opportunity to read these stories before, they will certainly not disappoint.
Each work is a landmark in genre and expertise. Morris was known for introducing the first Socialist fictions stories that changed the world of English Literature. Charles Swineburne was nominated for the Nobel Prize for literature four years in a row.

Inspired by the final short story, “A Summing Up” this rendition merges the melancholic experience of Clarissa Dalloway walking through her garden during a party with the final suicide note Woolf wrote to Leonard. The font for the text is drawn from Hogarth Press’ use of Caslon No 471 and images are inspired from the English garden tradition.
