On sunday... Petrine Archer-Straw's Negrophilia: Avant-Garde Paris and Black Culture in the 1920s as if i had taken speed reading course. It was easy to do b/c the pages are shiny and there are lots of photos, most of them unmentioned in the written comment. The photos serve as some sort of accent, not actual content. Very reductive book. But it might just be that readings of photographs feel that way to me. But it also what makes the book somewhat useful.
