In White Writing is a narrative visual poem or graphic novella or both. A record in either case of a life lived on paper, the writing-dust of 2007-10 retrieved, collaged and drawn over, drawn back on itself in a wholesale reversal or revaluation of print values, white text and images showing up and out of a solid and dreamless black ground.

If there is no point of rest, if everything is loose but nothing is torn, if there is no monochromy of image-category, romantic nonsense is transformed into a multiverse, a comic heterotopia. Deliciously so in Alan Halsey's graphic series In White Writing. Where there is the history of culture – of relativizing cultures – there is no order. Gradually, everything descends, or is freed, into 'demockery'.

—Cal Bedient, Lana Turner
