Description - Phone Booth by Ariana Kelly
Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things.
The phone booth exists as a fond but distant memory for some people, and as a strange and dysfunctional waste of space for many more. Ariana Kelly approaches the phone booth as an entity that embodies diverse attitudes about privacy, freedom, power, sanctuary, and communication in its various forms all around the world. Through portrayals of phone booths in literature, film, personal narrative, philosophy, and religion, Phone Booth offers a definitive account of an object on the cusp of obsolescence.
Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic.
