Micah Bloom's Codex examines the fate of books in the aftermath of the 2011 Minot flood. It is an ambitious project that flows across a wide range of media (digital text, video, hardcover, and paperback), embraces archaeological sensibilities, and speaks simultaneously to universal and profoundly local experiences. Presented with a group of nine original essays from scholars, thinkers, and historians, Codex represents a sustained meditation on the nature of the book and the fragility of our modern world.
