This Is Where You Were

with deckbox

Inspired by street art, "This is where you were" is something between a game, an art installation and a dark treasure hunt. It is a collection of cards that hint at a story, designed to be left around a location for people to find.

Designed to resemble plaques that commemorate historical events, the cards describe memories from an unnamed person's life. The descriptions are brief, poignant and evocative, hinting at a deeper story but never specifying it: "This is where you shared a hasty kiss", "This is where you smoked a stolen cigarette", "This is where you hid from men in uniform".

Each card is dated, across the months of August, September and October. As the dates progress, the story they imply changes. The cards of "This is where you were" suggest a life that begins in childhood, lives through war and emerges into an uncertain future.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
