This bilingual edition is dedicated to Valdis Āboliņš, Latvian exile, cultural activist, and the driving force behind the Fluxus movement in Aachen and nGbK in West Berlin, virtually unknown in Latvia. His ideas and heritage, like a lost and found message, were finally delivered to Latvia in this envelope-like edition, a reference to mail art—his passion and way to communicate with the outer world in the pre-internet era. Each section uses a different paper tone and starts with a gate fold that physically divides the content. Chapters in English are marked in the cut side. Each book holds one of four facsimiles of his letters.
