Sigmund Freud’s Desk - Ro Spankie
This newly released book by Ro Spankie explores the world of Freud’s over 2,000 antiquities.
The first impression on entering Freud’s study and consulting room is that of an overwhelming profusion of things. In an attempt to understand their significance and place in Freud’s working environment, this guide focuses on the sixty-five objects that can be seen on the surface of the desk: a mixture of writing implements, smoking paraphernalia and antique figurines, each object having a story to tell - both about the character they assume and about Freud, his life and work. This guide tells their story.
