A comprehensive collection of Ruscha in writing, on writing. Or rather, as editor Alexandra Schwartz begins her introduction with, a collection of discursive evidence of Ruscha's notorious "history of refusing to play along." This slew of text is loosely organized into personal writings, interviews, conversations, proposals, and beautiful facsimiles of his notebook illustrations and notes in "bit and pages." Published together, the various texts begin to form a discursive character of Ruscha that is both cheeky and earnest–who, despite all this material, leaves one always wanting to know more.
Ed. and with an introduction by Alexandra Schwartz.
