An overview work, with numerous examples of the reuse of material by artists and film-makers. Familiar and less familiar fragments of films and television, alongside home movies. Lots of text, lots of pictures, all collected into a carefully designed book that carries conviction throughout, starting with the cover and its muted palette and central white line.

Inside, strong editing with much variation in the pictorial matter, which is given all the space it needs and is often selected and used in such a way as to make clear that it is film material: by repetition, the depiction of film strips, and so on. And with all this, it is yet another book that feels good, sewn in a soft, paper cover, and with a book block of pleasant matt paper in a nice format.
