HAND BOOK TO THE UPPER CLASS

 

 

Ethnological writings – extremely popular in European courts – were often illustrated with color plates and engravings showing foreign people’s physiognomy, manner and customs. My intention is to use this visual language to create a guidebook where I analyse Britain’s upper-class and try to invert the roles and principles used in classic European ethnological studies.
