Hidden gem of a book! Pages reproduced directly from the sketchbooks and studio notes of artist Ree Morton (1936-1977).
"Data in these notebooks—accumulated over the years on hit or miss basis—using principles of selection mysterious to me which, furthermore, changed from year to year, and which I could not recover if I wanted to.
Sources questionable at best.
My excuse for brazenly dipping into this preempted domain is that I have a special interest, one that does not recognize a difference in value between a good novel and a bad one, a comic strip or an opera. All are equally useful in explicating the character of strips of experienced activity."
—Ree Morton, from The Mating Habits of Lines
