As with A CALAIS and REGROUP, and REFER – and REFER vol. 2, TWO LINES TITLED 4.08 and TWO LINES UNTITLED 4.08 are companion volumes. Again, the format and number of pages are identical, and the content is strongly related. In addition to the Two Lines, Peter Downsbrough again uses the grid on the full page or part of the page along with words printed at times in mirror image or else printed at different percentages of black, sometimes darker and sometimes lighter. As was done in TWO LINES, THRE SECTIONS (no. 82), which has a similar layout but a few more pages, the images in these two volumes are printed in duotone. Some of the elements overlap at times, as in the earlier book WITH ]IN – PLACE (no. 78).
