Cover drawings & design of Yüzüm Kitap: Cigdem y Mirol

MyFace Book (2014) was first published in Turkish (2012) as Yüzüm Kitap that literally means "MyFace Book". Cigdem y Mirol counts Yüzüm Kitap as the first BookPerformance that manifests the "bookperformance" as a being that is an object which is seeking for a life of a subject.

While we read the book, while the book is read, the discourse of it is heard and the composition process of it is seen. As a being, Yüzüm Kitap is also the first AuthorReader Performance, because the author and the reader are the main characters of a textual relationship that is wanted to be created with love, in the book.  

All in all, as BookPerformance is equally an AuthorReader performance and a ReaderAuthor performance which all together constitute the being that is called "bookperformance", then Yüzüm Kitap is also the first ReaderAuthor Performance, for the author of it created it with all the readership that she had ever had by then (by 2012, July the 26th) about obviously Facebook that is parodied and some other literature and art that cosititued her readership and helped her authorship. 

This revealation explains why Cigdem y Mirol, the author of "bookperformance", always introduces herself as "a reader" before everything.
