A translation, entirely in the form of drawings, of the first chapter of Marcel Prousts In Search of Lost Time
consists of 28 individual drawings of photocopies of sequential pages from the first chapter of the novel, pieced together from every existing English translation. This patchwork results in the repetition and omission of text from page to page, resolving into an incomplete and not-fully-readable rendition of the original.
