“Winston’s experiments came from looking at the structures of dif- ferent types of literature: from storybooks to bus timetables: “The way you navigate a timetable is very different to the way you read a short story” he comments. “I wanted to take these different types of visual navigation and introduce them to each other: a timetable re-ordering all the words from beauty and the beast, or a newspaper report on Snow White.” By imposing the visual rules of one style of writing to a di erent system of organizing language, Winston has created a visually arresting and verbally intriguing piece.”
