The ability a book has to spread and disseminate ideas in a rhizomatic way among the bodies makes it an expanded body impossible to shut down, impossible to track down. The power a book has can be found in this viral condition which allows it to host a myriad of carriers through different generations and places. Books are materialized ideas and, as Úrsula K. Le Guin says: “An idea, by its very nature, needs to be communicated: written, explained, realized. Like the grass, an idea searches light, loves the crowds, is enhanced by crossings and grows vigorously when someone walks through it.”
This poster is the second one of the series “Books Never …”, by Àlex Gifreu and Cecilia Marín, which will evolve and mutate over the years -Books Never Lie, Books Never Breathe, Books Never Kill, and so on- to end up as a manifest.
