This book catalogues the experience of chronic ill-health. The content interleaves images from an MRI scan of the spine with the traces of quotations from health professionals made during a period of thirty eight years, recorded with a traditional manual typewriter on tracing paper. The simple A4, ring-bound structure is designed to reflect a formal bureaucratic report. (This book has been donated to Kent University Library)
