As They Fall is a vivid, sensual journey into the haunted landscape of the self. Ivy Johnson's fragmented, handwritten poems take its shape as a deck of cards. Keep it on your nightstand or your kitchen table. Ask the deck a question, or create your own aleatoric practice. Each deck has been individually shuffled.
