Speed & Reading
Third in the Happy Hypocrite series, Volatile Dispersal presents a complete reprint of A Great Books Prime: Essays on Liberal Education, the Uses of Reading, and the Rules of Reading, originally published by the Great Books Foundation, Chicago (1955). Seemingly useless when divorced from the complete series of Great Books, this numerous primer exists as both an archaic set of rules, and open-ended set of possibilities. In this spirit, the editing process happens outside the journal in the form of a parley-based art writing festival at the Whitechapel Gallery, London in August 2009, with new commissions selected from invitation and open submission.
