Description

The writings collected in this compilation, edited by Lise Patt with Martin Gantman, use Walter Benjamin’s landmark 1937 essay “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction” as a springboard to apply Benjamin’s insights to a diverse selection of topics. Presented in the book’s margins are extensive excerpts from The Manual of Lost Ideas, a collection of images and related documents that arrived at the ICI as an anonymous bequest. Available in a trade or a commemorative edition that includes a sheet of 9 four-color stamps of images from the book. These stamps are designed to be glued on designated pages as miniature color plates.
