chè, per quanti più si dice lì nostro,
tanto possiede più di ben ciascuno
Dante, Purgatorio, XV, 55-56
Book of Copies is a database comprised of images that may be copied in order to produce architecture.
As such, Book of Copies is a receptacle of a collective form of knowledge that we can provisionally call “architecture”.
Book of Copies is organized according to a precise set of rules and is produced by a multitude of producers. Book of Copies is based on an inherently derivative and collective effort, starting with the zero-degree act of accumulation of formal knowledge, namely “collecting”.
The complete series of San Rocco Book of Copies in one collection of 5 volumes for a total of 4120 pages is now on sale.
Book of Copies will be produced in one exclusive and limited edition and will never be reprinted.
The books will be released in February 2015.
The Book of Copies could be pre-ordered before and not later than February 8th, 2015.
