“Merely holding the book gives you a sensual thrill.” —Jonathan Coe, The Guardian
Introduced by Tom Uglow, Google and YouTube
Composition No. 1 is the first ever book in a box (pre-dating BS Johnson's The Unfortunates), written by Marc Saporta and originally published in France in the Sixties. The book is made up of 150 loose pages, with a self-contained narrative on every page and can be read in any order. We don't think reading the book on a windy day is a good idea.
