"This book is a collage. As an artist's book, it is an assembly of 'readymades'. As to this being a text for a lesson in geometry, my pedagogy entails my being a plagiarist. In my effort to attain authenticity I am required to find the best I can to illustrate what I hope to put across to my students. The sources herein are the drawings of Saul Steinberg, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Stuart Davis, and Al Held. Documents that are not drawings include excerpts from Paul Klee's Pedagogical sketch Book (Frederick A. Praeger, Publishers), Stuart Davis's diary, and the book Form, Function & Design by Paul Jacques Grillo, (Dover Publications)." - artist's statement
