Temporal Drag (A6 BOOKS)
148 x 105mm
This book presents a facsimile of the 1892 edition alongside new texts, to trouble conventional assumptions of obsolescence and provoke a different relationship to time and history, unfettered from the demands of ‘progress’.
Temporal Drag is an imprint of A6 BOOKS, based in the London Centre for Book Arts.
We re-publish copyright-free texts—from the LCBA library and beyond—to put them in conversation with new ones. With a focus on texts about book and print culture, we consider the potential that the arises from engaging with ‘obsolete’ practices and ideas in the here and now.
