“For this book (which, like many other codices, should ideally be read like a detective novel) I have laid out my best beloved stencils. With these I seek to offer viewers various clues that you may unravel the wondrous and dramatic events surrounding the life of this artist, another witness to the end of a century. This work is also intended to serve as a musical score, perhaps to be composed by someone wishing to recreate the background music of our daily histories.”

Colophon
“The images are all stencils drawn and hand-cut by the author, reduced to size and intervened on a Mita DC-1656 electrostatic photocopier.”
