Mezzanine Week

On paper:

"Perforation! Shout it out! The deliberate punctuated wakening of paper and cardboard so that it will tear along an intended path, leaving a row of fine-haired white pills or tuftlets on each new edge! It is a staggering conception, showing an age-transforming feel for the unique properties of pulped wood fiber. Yet do we have national holidays to celebrate its development?"

~Nicholson Baker, The Mezzanine
