W. B. Gesammelte Schriften [W. B. Selected Writings] (2007-2020)

»W. B.: Gesammelte Schriften« is part of my Series »Copy and Erasure«. In this case, the starting point are books*, I found in a second-hand bookstore, and in which a former reader had underlined essential text passages. I copied the whole text by hand and deleted all previously unmarked passages of each volume afterwards.
