Poetry. Art. Collaboration. An unlikely marriage of print and digital, BETWEEN PAGE AND SCREEN chronicles a love affair between two characters, P and S. The book has no words, only inscrutable black and white geometric patterns that, when coupled with a webcam, conjure the written word. Reflected on screen, the reader sees him or herself with open book in hand, language springing alive and shape- shifting with each turn of the page.

The story unfolds through a playful and cryptic exchange of letters between P and S as they struggle to define their relationship. Rich with innuendo, anagrams, etymological and sonic affinities between words, BETWEEN PAGE AND SCREEN revels in language and the act of reading.

From the Back Cover:

"Page, don't cage me!" declares one of the lovers in this remarkable "first of a kind" interactive print-screen book. Between Page and Screen . . . mysteriously opens up a new world with the click on the computer screen, chronicling the misfortunes and misunderstandings of two star-crossed lovers, whose puns and paragrams resonate with a physical as well as semantic presence. Here, as Samuel Beckett said of Finnegans Wake, "form is meaning and meaning is form."
-MARJORIE PERLOFF

A letter of exchange. A punning jest and a poking joust between a "P" and an "S". A succession of inscrutable black and white figures plait a three-dimensional legibility from the alphabetic bit and digital byte they bear. The spatialized assembling and disassembling of wholes and parts makes reading a tactile animation of the close-at-hand and the out-of-reach. Between Page and Screen is an animate world to quell the fears of all of us terrified of losing the page.
-ANN HAMILTON

Between Page and Screen has reinvented visual poetry, doing so by displaying hieroglyphs that humans can read only through the eyes of robots. . . . Such a book heralds the virtual reality of our own poetic future, when everyone can read a book while watching it play on television, each hologram standing in its cone of light, hovering above the open page.
-CHRISTIAN BÖK

Review:

You suddenly see yourself projected on the screen, holding in your hands the paper pages from which the living language of digital text unfolds into the story. And what a story it is -- full of wordplay and innuendo, the narrative flows with equal parts humor and poetic sophistication as words morph into one another with your every movement, a visceral metaphor for the longing of the two alphabetical lovers.
-Maria Popova, Brainpickings

Innovators like Borsuk and Bouse prove that the future of the book should be something we all consider with optimism provided we think beyond current expectations and strive to build new ones.-Buzz Poole, Salon.com (April, 2012)

Between Page and Screen invokes--indeed necessitates--a love affair between the reader of books and the reader of screens, a love affair that is inevitable, timely, lovely.-Timothy David Orme, Diagram
