I relish the stickers I received in the mail last weekend. A gift: three pages of stickers, each with a narrative fragment printed on it, the first installation of Scott and Nick’s sticker novel Implementation. I’ve already stuck some of these gifts on signposts, giving them to others, opening the narrative to passers by, mixing meanings by what I stick them next to. Then I took photos and sent them back to Nick and Scott, who have put them on the web in a new cycle of giving.
Gift literature, viral narrative, stories spreading by quite different distribution chains than publishers and bookshops. They’ve promised PDFs so you can print your own soon. Voluntary infection.
