An article regarding a book “And Every Single One Was Someone” that consists only of the word “Jew,” repeated over and over again. A thought provoking piece based on the Nazi holocaust, I do wonder if each word was printed out by hand though, as opposed to being multiplied. the author quotes the artist saying it was done 9 million times, how long would that have taken? I tried and wrote it 94 times (with a few mistakes) in a minute so say around 90,000 minutes. I just think that it would have been a bit ‘cheap’ to simply copy it, I think the very least think an artist could do it go to the effort to hand print (or even handwrite) the words.
