This nine-part work presents excerpts from texts by the German poet Heinrich Heine (1797–1856) and the English poet Lord Byron (1788–1824), along with a glossary of terms from ancient Greek myth and history and a set of notes and diagrams of knots. In 1975, Darboven began work on Writing Time, which was published as a thirty-two-volume book in 1999. This related work thematizes epistolary writing and the ways it marks time and place. The German for "letter paper," BRIEF—PAPIER, appears as a header or footer on each sheet. The sixth sheet features a glued-on photograph of a sign near Darboven’s Hamburg home, similar to another that appears in the 1982 print shown next to this work. Inscriptions in blue felt-tip pen over the printed pages create a graphic immediacy and mark the date on which Darboven mailed the work to the artist and critic Georg Jappe.
