This book was borne from the donation of six Enid Blyton editions from the 50s; the original intention was to highlight childhood memories of reading Enid Blyton, however it became clear that opinions of the books had changed in recent years, therefore it was reviews of Blyton’s novels that became the basis of the project.
Using online sources, each unfavorable comment relating to Enid’s novels was recorded; a system was devised so that the more recurrent the word, the larger it would appear. The words were letterpress printed onto sequential pages from a 1957 edition of Five get in a Fix – therefore causing the original content to be obliterated.
