    CS Leigh is a writer and filmmaker, when he first approached weaponofchoice, the book was nothing more than a vast selection of images and snippets of text, close to 3600 emails between us were needed to get the book into existence. THE ANNOTATED SPECTACLE is a book of ideas, containing quality content such as lengthy essays and non-glamourous yet savvy fashion editorials. It is a book you carry around, you keep going back to it again and again. With 416 pages it’s a cross between a magazine and a soft-bound book. At 10,5cm x 14,5cm large and 2,5cm thick is a far cry from the big, bigger, biggest (taschen) books of today. Creating this little book was in every way a challenge. A process that should have taken a year, but was done in no more than 6 weeks. Traveling back and forth between Paris and Rotterdam, we worked in Hotel lobbies, the backseat of a black Benz, in trains and sometimes in our office. It was without doubt the most bizarre project we ever did and to complicated to get across on this site, but if you’re interested google mr CS Leigh it’s interesting reading… guaranteed. CS LEIGH: About two years ago or so I decided I wanted to make a book on the subject of Spectacle which I worked on for a year though the idea had been in my mind for many years. I wanted to engage with artists and writers and ideas in a different way than I do making films and I love books so much that it seemed like the ideal vehicle for that project. I wanted to open up my process again. That was “The Annotated Spectacle” and it came out last year in the Fall. CS LEIGH : I admire great work and I seek it out. Even when we’re at the printers with a book I’m adding content to the last second. I knew a lot of these people personally before and the others I went out and looked for. That was neither difficult nor easy. — Excerpts from an interview in QOMPENDIUM Read Less
