ICI Press

ICI publishes books, pamphlets, ethnographic studies, and limited artist editions/films. Many of our publications are unique, handmade objects that can be viewed in our library. Others books are published under the ICI Press banner.

ICI Press publishes books that have been called “rhizomatic verbal-visual webs.” As multi-disciplinary projects, they actualize as much as they analyze the image/text paradigm. Bataille’s Eye (1997) explores Georges Bataille’s novella, Story of the Eye. Benjamin’s Blind Spot (2001) unpacks Walter Benjamin’s difficult concept of aura. Searching for Sebald (2007) looks at W. G. Sebald’s unique method of bringing word and image together and explores the far-reaching impact of his work on the world of art. ICI is currently working on a book that explores Roland Barthes’ last book, Camera Lucida.
