The first book from this press--which is still going strong. Thorsten is on the faculty of Bennington College. No. 7 of 9 copies signed by the artist. A humorous look at human behavior. "The awkward figures and texts reflect the discomfort we have all experienced when [a statement is] so bizarre, irritating or touching that we are left silent." The artist's etchings are his response to these statements.
