This is a really cool project that was done by two Brooklyn artists and two artists from Belfast. Basically the idea was that the book would travel between the four artists for 36 weeks straight. When each artist received the book, he created a spread in response to the spread preceding it.

Every Wednesday, one artist would receive the book. The artist had five days to complete the spread. This cycle went on from June 2, 2003 to February 2, 2004. By the time the book was completed it had travelled over sixty thousand miles.

The coolest part about this project is that there was no communication between the artists aside from the actual spreads that were created. The book was exhibited in Belfast. When visiting the exhibition, guests could check out each spread in chronological order, isolated from each other as well as the physical book.
