Exchange Rate: 2008 Book Available Now

The Exchange Rate: 2008 book is now available for purchase in soft cover or as a free downloadable PDF.  I was very happy to see that the book is using a Creative Commons license and to see my screenshot from GTA make the cut.  The book looks great, thanks to Roman Jaster who did the design work for it.  The book includes the original copies of all the performance scripts and descriptions about them, the documentation of the performances, an essay by Claire Ruud, and a interview of Elana Mann about the project.  All in all it is 144 pages long, pretty hefty.  The official description of the book is below and you can purchase or download a copy here at, enjoy.
