28 photographs of street and pavement covers, with location and date in this new artist’s book by Peter Downsbrough (b. 1940, New Brunswick, United States).

Many have made their own version of this book, the random coverings and grilles encountered on drifts through the urban landscape.

With his characteristic interest in words and lines, Downsbrough applies his own playful minimal artistic grammar, system and precision in another work of his usual spareness and restraint.

With the word, one takes part in a dialogue, a discourse on its precise meaning […] The word for me is an object. It has both a precise and a vague meaning. It is a universe one is confronted with. But there is no obligatory way of reading.” — Peter Downsbrough
