Surrounded by Living Tissue by Oscar Guermouche

In Surrounded by Living Tissue the text “your clothes your boots your motorcycle” is written by hand throughout the entire book. The x-height of the letters is 1,7 millimeters, and their shape is based on the font Times New Roman. The text is taken from Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and is one of the lines spoken by the terminator; the work’s title comes from a line about the terminator from the first film in the series, The Terminator (1984).
