The text for this edition was performed live by the artist on the 16th of september 2010 at Christophe Daviet-Thery’s gallery and bookshop in Paris.

Christophe Daviet-Thery invited Toine Horvers to come up with a proposal for a publication related to his hand-writting in drawings and books.He decided that only a hand-wrtiiten could be conceptually interesting for reproduction and publication. In the text he gives a detalled description of all sort of procedural and visual aspects of hand-writting with a fountain pen on A4 paper. He sits on a small table and writes the memorised text on A4 sheets,while at the same time pronouncing the words in a very slow long drawn way.For the situation in the gallery he asked a French person to sit opposite him and pronounces the French translation,spoken in a normal way,overlapping with his own voice.The written sheets have been scanned and reproduced and presented in a folder.
