Scope and Contents

Black or white paint was applied to a page and while wet was pressed onto the facing page causing the two to stick together. The physical separation by Depew or the reader of the facing pages can cause tearing of the paper. Some copies have no separations, others multiple separations between the pages. Most covers have black and white paint on blue paper, few are on brown paper. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.


  • Creation: 1971
