The Familiar, Volume 4: Hades, by Mark Z. Danielewski @ NYJB

by

“The Familiar” series weaves a series of interrelated narratives together.

It is referential and self-referential with typographic experimentation and excesses. At times the traditional arrangement of paragraphs shatter, explode, or blur. In other instances the words form pictures, the boundaries between word and image disappearing altogether.
