AFFINITIES. A Journey Through Images from the Public Domain Review

An exploration of echoes and resonances across two millennia of visual culture, celebrating ten years of The Public Domain Review

Gathering a remarkable collection of over 500 images, Affinities is a carefully curated visual journey illuminating connections across more than two thousand years of image-making. Drawing on a decade of archival material at The Public Domain Review, the book has been assembled from a vast array of sources: from manuscripts to museum catalogues, ship logs to primers on Victorian magic. The images are arranged in a single captivating sequence which unfurls according to a dreamlike logic, through a play of visual echoes and evolving thematic threads – hatching eggs twin with early Burmese world maps, marbled endpapers meet tattooed stowaways,
and fireworks explode beside deep-sea coral.

At once an art book, a sourcebook and a kaleidoscopic visual poem, Affinities is a unique and enthralling publication that will offer something different on each visit. Its playful and imaginative approach invites the reader to transcend familiar categories of epoch, style or historical theme, and to instead revel in a new world of creative possibilities played out between the images – opening up new connections, ways of seeing and forms of knowledge.
