This is a booklet of instructions by various artists (apparently of some notariety) on how to assemble specific pieces of art. The idea is that these instructions are something like musical compositions which, when followed, produce the desired aesthetic result. From what I can tell the book was written to accompany a specific exhibition (or set of exhibitions) dealing with this theme. At the time I first tried to read this I couldn't much get into it. I was much more interested in trying to produce my own art than following the instructions of other artists. But the idea of a piece of art existing only on paper and in people's minds has some appeal to me and is something I've found of interest from time to time since reading the book. - Peter K.
