Hamady (7/6/1917): "These books ae pristine, as issued by the printer/publisher. Unlike the secondary market they are somehow of a better upbringing. Juxtamorphing (the) space (in) [catalog for exhibition "Juxtamorphing Space," James Watrous Gallery of the Wisconsin Academy, 7 October through November 20, 2005]: "This is the first collaboration with this author and the third with this artist. As in all creative endeavors, this one, almost Ouija-like, took guidance from the text, including custom-made papers (from Twinrocker and St. Armand) to evoke a corrugated cardboard box. Gill Sans Bold seemed appropriate to the toughness of topic and was reset with paper and copper thins to ease the reader's eye, the opposite effect of Drescher's imagery." Alastair Johnston, "Life & Death in Driftless, Wisconsin": "So often Hamady has used the binding to extend the meaning of the book - such as Auster's Reflections on a Cardboard Box (illustrated by Henrik Drescher, 2004), Perishable's 129th title. It has an entirely calligraphed title-page by Drescher printed in six colors, which has a cover stamped with the kind of seal you see on actual cardboard boxes (the Container Corp in this case is a container of art and ideas)." Paul Auster is an American novelist, essayist, translator, and poet.
