Readymade artist book by Swedish avant-garde poet, composer, and publisher Åke Hodell. 

This book takes the form of an illustrated instruction manual for the turn-of-the-century Singer Victoria sewing machine. Although the manual appears to be a how-to guide produced by a manufacturer, it was instead printed by Hodell’s own Kerberos imprint and attributed to Hodell himself. 

This artist book reveals Hodell’s playful sensibility that he may have developed from his loose affiliation with Fluxus.
