A second edition of Page 99 – which again examines the theory that, according to English writer Ford Madox Ford, if you open a novel at page 99 then ‘the quality of the whole will be revealed to you.’
This edition is based on the favourite novels of 9 librarians from universities and local libraries across the UK.
The hand-typed book is based on a traditional library card – with each page highlighting a fragment of text taken from page 99. The cover is date stamped with the publication date of each novel.
