Scope and Contents

The first page of the A book depicts 25, nearly identical, stick figures draw in ink in the style of A.R. Penck with collaged, round, red paper stickers for the heads. The heads have facial features drawn in ink. The verso has one red paper stick collaged onto the page. Each subsequent page has one less stick figure and one additional sticker on the verso. The final page of the book has one stick figure and 25 stickers collaged onto the verso. In Book B, red and green, round paper stickers are collaged onto most pages with ink, horizontal lines to emulate music scores. On other pages, surrealistic animal-like shapes, cut from music scores, are collaged onto the pages with music-like scores. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
