Arcana 1 is the first volume in a series of books designed to mount  an archive of the present through a collection of emblematic documents of the 21st century, culled from the media, advertising, and the internet. Arcana 1 gathers images of luxury watches cut out from magazines, with no typographical mention so to reveal the peculiar aura of these objects.
