Last Line Pole 38.
Here is the last line, rather end of the book. I started October 30, 2011 and finished October 30, 2013. Joyce finished the book On October 30, 1921. It took him seven years to write it, it took me two years to put it on poles. I used the true first edition that Sylvia Beach published in Paris and included all the typos. It has been an experience. The Poles are currently standing around my Bindery.

Star of David over Dublin.
I knew as I was writing away that Joyce had to have imposed a Star of David over the City of Dublin. It made all the sense in the world to me. I finally found the points, Molly told me almost near the last page. The points are the places the Blooms' lived, plus the upper right point, North Richmond Street, where the Joyce Family lived on the eventful day of June 16, 1904. The Map and Key to the Map is Part Two of "The Key to the Poles."

Key to the Poles.
I have completed a book called Key To The Poles. Part One: Each pole has 16 'cels' ( 4 pages). The first cel has the first line in it and then I measured down 9" and wrote that line in the next cel and so on, with the last cel containing the last line on the pole.

Another Proposal.
Had this idea to weave long mylar foot wide sheets between the poles to create one long 'binding'. This is just a quick trial.

G Code
I was given a copy of The Enemies of Books to turn into a prop book for a video, using the insides, but to make a new/old leather cover. The first shot is the original book. The second, the finished book. The third an altered added in page which is chapter three, but originally was titled 'Bookbinders'. I did this a while ago, just got round to putting it up now.

Ulysses
I am writing James Joyse's version of Ulysses on seven foot by two inch wooden ship dowels. I predict there will be 38 in total. The pens are archival. water proof, sun resistant. The poles are lightly washed and sanded before I begin. I am also taking some photos. And also writing/drawing a book on various ways to display them.
