The brief was to make a book in which the content (whether text/image/other) and/or the formal and physical elements (such as page layout and sequence, binding and materials) are in some way at odds with assumptions of what a book should be or do. sic is short for sic erat scriptum (thus, or, thus was it written). It is inserted after a quoted word or passage to indicate that this has been transcribed exactly as found in the source text. The notation's usual purpose is to inform the reader that any errors or apparent errors (for instance misprints, surprising assertions, faulty reasoning or spelling) are intentionally reproduced.

Books by artists often confound expectations; here the challenge might be to make something that initially seems to be/have mistakes and then to reveal an underlying logic - or not, and so remain in themselves non-sequiturs.

The books in the [sic] collection were selected by Sarah Bodman.
