This edition documents new species of nocturnal life in the residential area of Montreuil-sous-Bois before their immersion in the flux of vertical civilisation. On the cover is a collage of a bottle containing the plan for the transformation of one of the bungalow into a time capsule. Twenty copies are bound in a dark blue cover the size of a passport. Each booklet shows the printed booklet and folds out into 3 flaps, each containing an original Polaroid signed by the artist. The binding and gilt prints were made at the Martial workshops in Paris. Five hundred booklets were printed in Marseille at the Horizon printers.
