66 p., 21.5 cm. Twenty-three pieces, several previously published. 'Hung from a nail on the side of his head, all his dependencies dangle.

Not just replicas but the thing itself in visual symbol, material sign, which in his mind happens to stand for it so lucidly, so conveniently. …' (Abstract Man). Stock # 25,699x. paper; fine.
