South African artist William Kentridge can become many things: painter, sculptor, engraver, decorator, theatre and film director, actor, and more. His primary subjects of engagement are apartheid, post-colonialism, history, and the passage of time. This limited edition notebook consists of drawings and writings with inserted typescripts, plus an original work, numbered and signed by the artist, and is printed on various formats. Within, Kentridge divulges the codes that drive his body of work, such as palimpsest and repetition, forming an analogy between a book and the tree as the source of creation, wherein his fountain pen freely wanders between various images and associations.
