A book about writing, storytelling, translation and interpretation. Artist Jort van der Laan translated ‘A Journey Through My Room’, a story by Dutch writer J.M.A Biesheuvel from Dutch to English (prior to this book’s publication in June 2011 the story was not available to read in English). Yet this translation is incomplete. The missing lines and paragraphs of the story are made visible throughout the book as blank spaces. The format of the book and design of the interior was copied from a 1972 collection of Biesheuvel’s stories owned by the artist which includes ‘Reis Door Mijn Kamer’ or ‘A Journey Through My Room’.
