To mark (somewhat belatedly) the occasion of its tenth anniversary, Cabinet magazine is pleased to announce the publication of Curiosity and Method, an illustrated encyclopedia featuring more than one hundred idiosyncratic entries such as Addiction, Bureaucracy, Cipher, Goalkeeping, Levitation, Micronation, Otolith, Sandal, Traffic, Worlding, and Zoosemiotics. Culled from the first forty issues of the Brooklyn-based quarterly, most of which have long been out of print, the entries are accompanied by seven newly commissioned essays on selected keywords—attention, pranks, listening, pleasure, curiosity, collecting, and the everyday—important to Cabinet‘s approach.
