Scope and Contents

The four artists in this book are Wally Depew who wrote and designed the woodblock prints for the overleaf for the fold-out for it, and the cited artists, Sol LeWitt, Darrel Forney and Linda Bandt. The theme of the this book involves wordplay. Depew used three adjacent letters from each artist's name, e.g. SOL, FOR, & LIN to rubberstamp words containing these letters on each page. For example, SOLEMN, FORCE, LINGUIST. The loose sheet entitled, ANALYSIS, documents the statistics involved with rubberstamping. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
