Reference noteThe artist's book is a contribution to the large number of books on the environment and the !Xam. Written in two ways: Firstly it is physically presented as part of a series of books (as if it were a pile of books on a table). Secondly, there is the content of photographs of the land art the artist made during the journey and quotations from other authors' works on the !Xam and Verneukpan.
