This artists book translates the No Thank You Monologue in the play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand into a drawn version of Semaphore signalling. The refrain "No Thank You!" repeats again and again throughout the book serving as a potential Rosetta Stone through which the reader/viewer can begin to decipher the code and see past the abstraction, finding the rhythm of the words. Digitally printed from over 40 original drawings.
