THE LONG 19TH CENTURY DIGESTED VOL. I

The Long 19th Century Digested is a two-volume paper museum. It contains 125 pamphlet reproductions of books published between the outbreak of the French Revolution (1789) and the beginning of WWI (1914). It revives the fresh curiosity of the epoch’s visual literacy through a cross-section of its Zeitgeist as this came down to us in print.

From the “Book of Bread” to the “The Moon Considered as a Planet, a World and a Satellite”, The Long 19th Century Digested invites readers to embark on a non-linear journey into the anthropological, the artistic, the astronomical, the bookish, the erotic, the esoteric, the natural historical, the photographical, the childish, the folkloristic, you name it.
