The Nobel-prize winning poet Wislawa Szymborska's whimsical poem "Pi" juxtaposes the finite, impermanent world with the familiar never-ending 3.1415... This book's structure and typography echo the poem, juxtaposing the discrete stanzas with the numerical sequence, which starts on the cover and dances across the pages, oblivious to the words, continuing on the back cover, and finally slipping off the edge.

You can read the poem here: http://plagiarist.com/poetry/?wid=9170

The book is 5-1/2" by 3-1/2", and printed letterpress on Somerset paper. Designed, printed and bound by Susan Angebranndt (Green Chair Press). Limited to 100 numbered copies.
