Repetition & Recollection… is inspired by Søren Kierkegaard’s insightful dialectic from his 1843 book, ‘Repetition’and is the essence of this book.Repetition and recollection are the same movement, only in opposite directions: for what is recollected has been, is repeated backwards, whereas repetition properly so called is recollected forwards. Tactile words flowing in opposite directions across the folded pages echo the back-and-forth play between repetition and recollection. Recollection is confined to the past; or is it bringing the past into the present? Repetition, on the other hand, is in constant forward motion; or is it connecting the past to the future? Kierkegaard’s paradox remains. Double-sided concertina format 170 x 120mm; letterpress printed in Bembo; foil-blocked covers. Produced by Book Works, London.
