Scope and Contents

This catalogue was edited by Pierre Restany. It includes reproductions of three handwritten sound poems that are similar in layout and content to those held by the Sackner Archive. The reproduction of one of these poems entitled "Vertimila anni avanti Cristo" is virtually identical to the poem held by the Sackner Archive entitled "Twenty Thousand Years Before Christ," which is its English translation. Most of the reproduced works in this book consist of decollages. Rotella died in January 2006. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
