Review of Karl Kempton's precincts of the 5th apocalypse

via Bob Grumman's po-X-cetera

precincts of the 5th apocalypse is an ambitious series of 18 frames which appears as a section of karl kempton's book, black strokes, white spaces, which was published in 1984 by Xexoxial Editions when it was still calling itself Xerox Sutra. Each of its frames contains an image constructed of identical typographical characters. Together those images dramatically relate the gradual decay toward final destruction of present-day civilization.
