Summary
"The Humanities Institute at Scripps College provides lectures, films, exhibits and discussion groups every year on a rich and multi-faceted theme. The theme this year was silence. We adopted this theme for the Scripps College Press book project in order to investigate how we experience silence through our senses. Naturally, we discussed the fact that total silence is impossible to experience, since it only occurs in a vacuum. The students proceeded to tease out those aspects of silence that we can experience physically or metaphorically"--Introduction by Professor Kitty Maryatt

Six colors of paper were chosen to suggest the way we might experience silence through the senses. Rives BFK and Arches Cover were selected for this purpose. The typeface selected was 12 pt. Centaur and Arrighi. Imagery was produced by cutting plastic Duralar stencils and coloring with Colorbox pigment pads. The book was bound in Japanese bookcloth over boards."--Colophon
