Codex is the title of an exhibition-manifesto conceived by Pierre Leguillon during a residency in San Francisco. As an artist and book collector, Pierre found himself within the stacks of the Prelinger Archive, a local independent research library that houses 19th and 20th century historical ephemera, periodicals, maps, and books. Founded by Rick and Megan Prelinger in 2004, the unique organization of this “appropriation friendly” library conceives of its holdings as a “landscape of ideas,” classifying subjects both spatially and conceptually.
