N.13 A Proustian Memory. Aw 2016
The title of this edition was inspired by Marcel Proust’s writings on involuntary memories; those moments when the taste and smell of food inspire unanticipated and powerful recollections, transporting you to a time and place. In the same vein, this issue looks at collections of tangible objects and how they can serve as a lot more than a literal sense of ownership in the mind of their collector.
