Praise

The Archive is a collection of pivotal essays on the role of archives in modern art and history…The book’s playful design employs pull quotes resembling children’s lettering, street-art manifestos or eye exams. One such is from Walter Benjamin’s essay, ‘A Short History of Photography,’ showing the inspirational potential of archival material: ‘Utrillo painted his fascinating views of Paris not from life but from picture postcards.’—Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times
