Notations

15-1-2024

On books that matter, no. 1: Christie’s auctions a 1555 edition of Andreas Vesalius’s De Humani Corporis Fabrica, featuring over one thousand marginal annotations in the author’s own hand. “This copy, whose annotations are the closest we can get to Vesalius’s thoughts in how he would conceive of a third edition, is a work entirely sine pari.” Bidding starts in two days.

9-9-2023

Thinking in blocks, no. 3: the fourth block of Manfred Laber’s Zeitpyramide was installed today. One block of the pyramid will be installed every 10 years until the work’s eventual completion in 3183.

6-9-2023

Thinking in blocks, no.2: Adeline Harris’s tumbling block quilt, 1856. “She sent small diamond-shaped pieces of white silk worldwide to people she esteemed as the most important figures of her day, asking each to sign the silk and return it to her. By the time the signatures were all returned and ready to be stitched into a…quilt, Adeline had amassed an astonishing collection of autographs.”

24-8-2023

Thinking in blocks, no. 1: the world’s longest ultra-marathon event, the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence Race, begins next week. It is a 52-day, 3,100-mile race around a single city block in Queens, NYC.
