Examples

  • For one thing, although this book is divided into chapterlike sections, they are not labelled as "chapters"; and in the table of contents these sections are displayed not in a single orderly column but in a somewhat irregular grid, with vertical and horizontal rows of thumbnail images (twelve in total, each representing a section of text) intended to convey the nonlinear yet interconnected quality of the book as a whole.
