For ‘720’ I chose three, six word quotes, from the last three things that i had read. These were; the Ernst Hemingway quote, an article by Sean Ashton in Map magazine and Allen Ginsberg’s Howl. It was decided that the text should be chosen in this manner as it left much of the result to chance. I then discovered that with any six words you will always get exactly 720 different combinations of those six words, i.e. there will never be less than six words and it will always be the same six words, but there are 720 unique variations of the word order. These variations were then published in a 3 piece handmade book set with solander box.
