Volume update

The manuscript of Volume has been delivered to the publisher, Princeton Architectural Press, and is in the process of editing. The projected publication date is August 2010. Some of the writings mentioned previously have been retitled and a revised track listing is given below, with word counts. However, some previously published works have been substantially revised and remastered, or will appear in their original form (for instance, “Trenchancy” first appeared in a dramatically abbreviated form in Eye magazine as “Fanfare for the Common Hack.”) An asterisk denotes pieces that have been published previously in some form. In addition, the book will feature liner notes by Rudy VanderLans.
