100 Notes – 100 Thoughts

As part of our ongoing renovation of our art books section, we've just received a selection of books from the 100 Notes – 100 Thoughts series that art publisher Hatje Cantz issued as a companion to the Documenta (13) art fair in 2012. The series includes facsimiles of existing notebooks, commissioned essays, collaborations, and conversations from a wide range of contributors. We have some from philosophers (Walter Benjamin, Judith Butler, Donna Haraway, Michael Hardt, Silvia Federici, Graham Harman), artists (Ian Wallace, Lawrence Weiner), filmmakers (Alejandro Jodorowsky), poets (Kenneth Goldsmith), fiction writers (the recently-Booker-Prize-winning Lydia Davis) and art theorists (Boris Groys, Pamela M. Lee).

Like the New Directions Pearls series or Penguin's Great Ideas, these little books are colourful, portable, affordable and eminently gift-able servings of ideas. Brain vitamins!
