2 Xerox prints from the mid-1970s.  Xerox’s of 40 years ago had a grainy gray quality that was ideal for hand coloring with Prismacolor pencils. A title, a signature, and a date made each one into a little mono-print. In the “Tools of the Trade” print, the lines fore and aft are from each tool depicted, including cuts for the X-Acto knife and dried adhesive from the glue stick. Also in the grouping is an early Pentel Pen, and the ubiquitous, all purpose Rapidograph Pen

The dean of so many great Detroit photographers:  +Bill Rauhauser 1914-2017+   An exhibition poster we did in the early 80’s, using his photo of his camera, tilting it on a angle and incorporating it’s little arrows and tic marks into my then current “connotative typography” practice.  This was also the reason for the mix of bold and medium letters within the words and blocks of words, meant to reflect the idea that a photographic likeness is composed of the grouping of lighter and darker shapes and forms into a fixed order necessary to make it a “readable” image.
