A Humument, an oracle of love and life: a diversion of chance and change.Combining the 367 full-colour pages of Tom Phillips artists book, the treated Victorian novel A Humument, with an interactive oracle function, this App displays the luminous artwork in a fun and highly accessible way. The App version includes 39 newly created, previously unpublished pages.Using a chosen date and a randomly generated number the oracle will cast two pages to be read in tandem. You may receive direction, encouragement or warning. The Find wheel spins through the book to quickly navigate the pages visually and find your favourites. Email your personal choices or oracle reading to friends. Sharekit supports image posts to Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook direct from the App.I found this book (or rather, it found me) when I was not quite thirty and have worked on it constantly ever since. It beckoned me on as it yielded strange words and provoked new images and told the fragmentary tale of Irma and Bill Toge. Now I am well over seventy and still revisiting and revising its pages, I find further layers of hidden texts and buried messages. Like the I Ching, the ancient Chinese Book of Changes, chance pairs of pages, taken together and interpreted, act as a guide and cryptic commentary on life in word and picture; a not-too-serious oracle which I now share with you.Tom Phillips 2012FEATURESOracle functionFind wheelPost images to Email | Facebook | Tumblr | Twitter direct from the App.Zoom into pages52 completely new unpublished pages to dateARTIST: tomphillips.co.ukA HUMUMENT: humument.comTUMBLR: tomphillipshumument.tumblr.comiPhone 3 & 4 version release 2011
