Inferior Quotations by critter, Secondish Edition
Inferior Quotations is a collection of words, phrases, and proverbs traced to their present sources, inspired by the book “John Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations.” It is a 592-page paperback. The first edition was published in 2016 in conjunction with an exhibition featuring 12 prints, where each print was a reproduction of an odd numbered page from the book. This ‘Secondish Edition’ has some minor changes to it’s appearance and contents. It includes a preface, historical note, a guide to using the book & an index.
"The author says you can cut the spine off and hand out individual pages to acid-tripping goof balls in public places because that's been done before with success, but doesn't exactly suggest that."
About the author:
"I'm just wingin' it. This is a person who often does things in Raleigh North Carolina, claims to like both happen- and circumstance, likes delight and gentle breezes, also likes a prism's spectrum plopped on to its favorite pieces of plywood, likes certain foods now more than it will in the future, is occasionally diligent, makes a fuss about nothin' often, can't tell a story to save its life, can hide behind a smiley face, likes gettin' loose, likes friends, is more grateful when things are quote-unquote goin' well, prefers both a saturated brain and one that's unaware of its self, zoops, zarps, and/or at least used to, prefers being mesmerized, hasn't had too many bad experiences with synchronicity, plays stupid games, dreams, oh god this is probably too much information also known as TMI."
