This book is a representation of the the preservation carpentry process from a crumbling start to a restored end. There is not much narrative unveiled on the surface of the book but within the structure. With a flashlight, the audience will be able to discover the whole story in the structural inner layer of the book, just like they will be able to see the work that carpenters have done when they peel away the paint and the first layer of the preserved wall.
