A memento of a recent hotel stay. So many antiquities packed into one tiny space: the ballpoint pen, the stationery, the touch of personalization, the concept of “dialing.” Suffice to say there were no instructions inside, no matter what the note suggests.

In the end, the line, positioned at the page’s bottom, suggests itself as a creative prompt. Some visitors might not even know a telephone was ever involved.
