“Humor in the news”
LA based artist Charlene Matthews took on the task of literally raising up the prose of this monumental tome and the result is incredible.
Charlene Matthews, a Los Angeles based artist and bookbinder, set out on October 30, 2011 to write the entirety of the first edition of James Joyce's Ulysses, typos and all, on seven foot by two inch wooden ship dowels.
The book contains approximately 265,000 words.
The artist predicted that there would be 38 poles in total.
The poles were lightly washed and sanded before she began.
