Cover Versions


Cover Versions: The Communist Manifesto in Cabinet magazine, issue 4, Fall 2001.

All derived from an earlier book project MANIFEST by Tim Brennan and Geoff Cox / with Adrian Ward.

A reprint of the first edition of the ‘Communist Manifesto’ (German) first printed in 1848 juxtaposed with screen shots of a custom-built web browser version (English). The book is a response to the paradoxes of theory and action, simply to represent what is already known but remains unimplemented.

The book encourages people to visit the website [now offline] where links are found to contextual information and from where the specially-built web browser can be freely downloaded – the browser permitted public access to the entire contents of the users hard disk.

PUBLISHED 1999 by Working Press, with support from the Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust. ISBN 1 870736486, 146X214mm, 48pp. 46 Illustrations. Sold at cost price.
