Genji Monogatari: The Typhoon

The destruction of
text rather than
the deconstruction
of it. An automatic
book scanner hard
at work in the
next room, Linnaeus
on the platen, other
botanical treatises
before, after. With the
typhoon now not far
away he had hoped
not to save the garden
but a description of
what was in it. But.
Old fonts not suited
to OCR—the bloffoms
are not diptinguifhed.
and feeds are laid
to be ftrongly
odoriferous
. Behind
lowered shutters
Akikonomu worried
about her autumn flowers.
