SCARABOOK is the combination of Scarabottolo and the English word book (but perhaps we ought to say notebook). It defines a project that has its origin in a gift (the paper), a selection of drawings (99) and a simple combinatorial rule (such as Cn,k = C99,2 = n!/k!(n-k)!), plus some other operations on the side. The result is the systematic-orgiastic coupling of 99 drawings printed on both sides of sheets of Fabriano Grifo laid paper and bound in sextodecimo with red thread. That is how this new series of 9801 one-off pieces was born. (Michele Calzavara)
