Therefore, it is only fitting that this book begins with a Johns' Target, which some may say in a tongue and cheek manner, is an object [for a] d'art."; OF INTEREST: a July auction of this item on Paddle8 Lot 25 brought $950.00; foam pad has normal browning and some of the paint pad's pigment on it; rubbing & marks to the white plastic box; the color paint pots and brush are still attached; overall the print, 3 paint pots, brush, and catalogue in very good cond; there are some faint yellow marks on the front of the plastic clamshell box otherwise all in VERY GOOD COND.
