this is a prototype for an artist’s book edition of Problems Posers and Possibilities: meditations towards a unified field of (game) design. the prototype was printed with pigment inks onto 18″ wide bond paper, trimmed, folded, and gathered into a single 8.5 x 11 inch signature 48 pages in length. the thoughts in the essay are at version 5 with the visual composition being at version d. the composition was created in Scribus, and I’ve misplaced the source file among my directories. It may be that I got a new computer and the source is on the old one. the essay has been presented in earlier forms at the 2016 High Ground Design Conversation and the 2018 SWPACA conference.
