The second volume in Cabinet’s 24-Hour Book series, New York–based artist David Scher’s Hail, Cretin! features the melancholy peregrinations of a demicenturion missing his upper half. This protagonist—a lonely, postimperial half-man who seems fated to permanent homelessness—experiences the landscape as if for the first time.
