68-page artist's book, designed by Goldberg using the images in an early 1950s mail order catalogue she found. The objects (many of them women's undergarments) are captioned only with their catalogue numbers and reproduced in their original colors. One can see why Goldberg, a graphic designer, was attracted to these images, the typography, and the design of the catalogue. The front endpaper consists of the brand logos found in the catalogue; the rear endpaper reproduces part of its index and the rear free endpaper its order form. Fascinating. Fine in hardcover, with ISBN number on metal plate to front; issued without dust jacket.
