Hotel Zymoglyphic

In the fall of 2018, the Zymoglyphic Museum sent its resident scribe, Jason Squamata, a.k.a. the Orakuloid, on a two month solo expedition to the fabled Zymoglyphic region. His mission was to penetrate its enigmatic fogs and bring back hitherto unknown insights about that mystery-enshrouded land that have up to now evaded the museum’s researchers. He became so entangled in its multidimensional miasma that he has yet to find his way back. We believe he may have gone native. Fortunately, we have been able to acquire his journal entries via special envoy.

The book as cabinet of curiosa...[T]he driving emotional force is surrealist fear and desire, erotic pursuit as grail quest in an omniversal macromuseum where the zymoglyphic concept cluster and its exhibits are fetishized and poetically photographed from every angle.
