Inspired by literary precedents such as automatic writing, by the resourcefulness of the bricoleur making do with what is at hand, and by the openness toward chance that all artistic production under severe constraint must necessarily incorporate, Cabinet’s “24-Hour Book” series invites distinguished authors and artists to be incarcerated in an unfamiliar space to complete a project from start to finish within twenty-four hours.

The inaugural volume in the series, Brian Dillon’s book is both a personal reflection on the theatrics of the study, the library, and the office and a historical consideration of the paraphernalia associated with celebrated writers.
