Brief History of the World by Paul Dodd

I am not the best reader but I am pretty good with picture books, art books and the like. “Brief History of the World” is a set of 21 spiral bound notebooks compiled over a twenty year period, roughly 2000 – 2022. Appropriation, cut and paste, juxtaposition and free association are the tools I use in creating this series.

Seven books from this series are available here as free eBook downloads. The files should open in the book app on your desktop, tablet or mobile device.

NOTE: Although my eBooks can be viewed in single page mode they were designed to be viewed in the horizontal, two-page view. There is a dialog between the facing pages. Here are three sample spreads:
