“Kitaj […said] that this series was inspired by Walter Benjamin’s 1931 essay ‘Unpacking My Library: a talk about book collecting’, which considers the book as an object to be valued and loved… Kitaj transcends the idea of the physicality of the book.  By enlarging the covers he gives the chosen volumes a monumental presence, reinforcing the subjects within the covers with a new and powerful resonance.”
