The National Bestseller project re-uses 48cent books from The Strand Bookstore in New York. Each book is cut from its binding and then reassembled as a single sheet to be installed in a NYC phone booth. For every 10 pieces made, one was embellished with a blood stain. If you saw a stained piece you could be sure there were nine others not far. This project began on 08-04-09, continued for two months and resulted in the removal of 43 advertisements.
