"Hors de Commerce
Also known as HC prints. Prints not equal in quality to the edition that may have minor flaws. These usually aren't signed and are canceled in some way, such as a hole in a corner or a stamp indicating they are not for sale. These prints are used by sales people to show to potential clients."

joelgailer.com comes up as nothing but white text on a black background. The text declares "nothing between us but text and light". I think that is a pretty elegant way of describing the experience of gathering your information off a computer screen. As vvork.com says perfectly "Hors de Commerce is a work that exists in publishable form only, unlike most art production, which culminates in a single or limited number of objects." Do you suspect that this will be the eventual destiny of all print production...from mass to art object. Back to future of the illuminated manuscript.

Taste is a dictatorship.
