Description

A beautiful reproduction of “The Outline of History” by H. G. Wells takes the form of what Olson refers to as a “reconstituted’ index. Each pages of the book consists of that page’s entries from the index of the original book – providing a new abridged volume of the classic. Consisting only of lists of names, places, and subjects the original narrative is lost and replaced with a re-presentation of existing information. This artist book as a reference tool will provide the gist, or in other words the general outline of history as an epic exercise in name dropping.
