Reflecting Lee Dueg­young’s mirror-like pictures of the Han riversides, the book can be accessed from either direction: the collective Optical Race’s contribution — transcripts from the Traffic Broadcasting System’s radio show — is placed upside down, providing an alternative direction for reading. The reproductions are printed on matte-glossy paper, and the texts are on rough, off-white paper.
