Ecstasy of Influence
An editorial study on plagiarism and visual influence. 

Throughout the text, the copy is interrupted by captions commenting on its plagaristic nature. The images are also reminicent of “re-using” old ideas and creating something new out of those borrowed items. The book follows a visual language of bleeding, overlap, and interruption to highlight the author’s message of “influence.”

Ecstasy of Influence is an article written by Jonathan Lethem for Harper’s Magazine.
