This book takes the reader out into the streets and archives of London to discover the reason behind a void in a row of terraced houses. The book's structure and design echoes the process of research: secret folds and flaps in the pages reflect the hidden nature of archived information. To see some typical spreads follow this link.

Using 85gsm archival paper, the shape of images through the pages are just visible, allowing ghostly silhouettes to interact with text. The book aims to lay bare the mechanics and complexity of contructing a picture of the past.
