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.
This is the digital version of the book released in 2017 by The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota (http://thedigitalpress.org/) as a numbered, large-format, print version combining Micah Bloom’s photography with nine new essays inspired by Codex. This digital text is both a stand alone book and a companion to two versions of a film (40 minutes: https://commons.und.edu/press-media/1 and 20 minutes: https://commons.und.edu/press-media/2) and a trade paperback.
