Jessica White: "The images are from the 1903 edition of Gray's Anatomy, and yes, the title page echoes the wording from that book, with slight changes such as my name inserted as the author (J.C. White). The rest of the text is original (by me), as well as the drawings of 'secrets' that are integrated with the anatomy images. The book is essentially about the ways that I imagine secrets enter into and affect a person physically before becoming lodged, maybe permanently, in the kidneys. This idea came up during a time when a friend of mine was dealing with kidney stones."
Text: "The secret will often lodge in one throat, creating the sensation of a lump. This may result in difficulty in swallowing and a lack of breath."
