Creating the illusion of real food, a photographic image of a sausage roll laying on an A-Z, is wrapped around an original book. In both this work, and Ham Sandwich and Oxford English Dictionary the choice of object and food stuff is the familiar, every day and mass produced. Similar to the notion of the multiple they are already copies. The food through its placement on the reference books, obscures information and becomes an organic indicator of size. Whilst the cover and the book contain information of absolute fact.
