'MONSTERS' serves as a tangential addendum to 'Eclipse Body & Soul Syntax' (published by Pre–Echo in 2021). Using the same scanning process as before, Relph gathered 1000 images of public telephone boxes in New York and Los Angeles. In contrast to 'Eclipse Body & Soul Syntax' the scans in 'MONSTERS' are more uniform, upset though they are by digital artifacts and surface interruptions: paper, stickers, paint, rust, rainwater, a hologram, reflective vinyl, screws, ketchup, plants, bird shit, electrical cable. Working in collaboration with the artist, an edit of 452 images were assembled in random order, with the sequence beginning on the front cover, and ending on the back. The page numbers are accompanied by numbers which correspond to individual xerox copies of each image, which Relph is making available through his Seeing Plastic imprint. The book's imprint information is all included on the spine. Mast Books / Pre-Echo Press, 2022. Softcover, 452pp., 8.25 × 11.75 inches.
