A Brief Guide to Spinoza's Ethics


A silkscreen-printed handbook that illustrates the core concepts of Spinoza’s philosophy. A Brief Guide was conceived as one of Kayrock Screenprinting’s monthly artist books. The book was printed in an edition of 127, in white and black inks on French Paper by Kayrock’s studio.

A Brief Guide was selected by artists Ron Martin and Att Poomtangon for display in the Sterling Pavilion Gallery of the 2009 Venice Biennale as one of five books affecting the way they think and create their art.

It’s available for purchase at the Manhattan art book storefront, Printed Matter, the Cinders gallery in Brooklyn, and direct from Kayrock.
