A remake of a rare book on hand bookbinding found in a second hand book shop in Aarhus, documented digitally and printed and hand-sewn for the Piracy Collection. The book's former owner was a local bookbinder, whose death left a gap in the art and craft knowledge of bookbinding in Denmark. Thus the remake reflects on the constantly disappearing knowledge and things considered to be "inefficient".
