The 40 black and white photographs included in the book all fit a standard form. They depict a single bent/used/discarded nail against a mottled blank background, each print sized one-to-one with the actual scale of the original nail (i.e. they’re pretty small). In each case, Kerpaitė has gone on to carefully fold the physical print, hiding the portions of the nail that are bent or damaged. The result is a parade of nails that are each perfectly straight from head to sharp tip, their functionality magically restored, with their lengths varying depending on how much folding was required to straighten out the form.
