Top and above: Cover and pages from ‘SWAG: The Talent of the Others’, BA dissertation by Adrien Pelletier, Central Saint Martins, 2004. ‘This home-printed book is a collection of fictional interviews around the theme of “borrowing from others”,’ writes Pelletier. ‘The research investigates various dialectic oppositions, such as original vs copy, authentic vs fake, author vs artist, legal vs legitimate and authority vs integrity. And, of course, you vs me.’
