Louis Luthi – A Die With Twenty-Six Faces
In A Die With Twenty-Six Faces, the author guides us through his collection of books with letters for titles, referred to as alphabet books. Some of these titles are familiar, such as John Updikes S., Georges Perecs W, and Louis Zukofskys A. Others are obscure, perhaps even imaginary, like Arnold Skemers C and D, or Zach Sodensterns A. Tracing connections between these books, the author elaborates on the symbolic content of letters, Joycean characters, Franz Kafka, Guy Davenport, and libraries within libraries. Designed by the author and mixing essay and fiction, the book is a playful meditation on contemporary literature, typography, and book collecting.
