Des Lewis Dreamcatcher Gestalt Real-Time Reviews Printed as Books

‘Text of Dreamcatchers Transcribed as Real Books’

image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image
Above non-profit books are raw transcripts from internet to print – please enquire if you would like to buy signed copies from me:


I don’t normally worry about signed books myself, but it seems to me that these books are a crystallisation of internet posts, i.e. making such posts ‘unchangeable’. The text flows from page to page without human intervention. For tangible provenance you may need them signed by me on any review you’re interested in or at the front of the book or both.

Or you can order them unsigned straight from the printer: Volumes ONE and TWO and THREE and FOUR and FIVE. and SIX and SEVEN and EIGHT and NINE and TEN and ELEVEN and TWELVE and THIRTEEN and FOURTEEN and FIFTEEN and SIXTEEN and SEVENTEEN and EIGHTEEN and NINETEEN.

The first cover photograph is from the Glyptotek Museum, Copenhagen, taken by myself in October 2010. Coincidentally, my very first real-time review in November 2008 concerned a book entitled ‘Glyphotech’ by Mark Samuels.

Although these represent raw transcripts of text from the internet – they are very readable and the books themselves have turned out to be physically pleasing, in my view.
