The Encyclopaedia Citacephale has been a long-running project with a rolling list of Medway-based contributors. We are nearing completion to the project, as Sam puts the final touches to the layout of issue 8.
The Encyclopaedia was born last year when Moogie Wonderland invited us to do some writing inspired by an encyclopedia created by Georges Bataille. The project grew as we expanded the writings we had done for Moogie Wonderland.
We are trying to capture and define the nature and essence of city-ness in a collection of creative writing.
Limited edition free issues of the Encyclopaedia have been left around the Medway towns (and further afield!) for people to randomly enjoy.
Once the final issue is completed we will be collating a ‘best of’ issue together, and doing some sort of event. Watch this space…
