The exhibition features books, paintings, collages, periodicals, and ephemera that explore fundamental relationships between: form and content; seeing and reading; writing and drawing; and the extraordinary occasions when these things and activities fuse, introducing a third element. This exhibition was previously mounted at the New York Center for the Book among other venues.
