The book's jacket can be unfolded and function as a poster.

"... The Lectures took place in a theater built by gelatin in the main space of the Leo Koenig Gallery, ... It was a half circle in shape, and it had a mezzanine, 1st balcony, and in some places a 2nd balcony. people also had orchestra seats...
The theater was very solidly built, and did not shake or creak...." - Norman Dubrow

"It took us almost two years to finally be happy satisfied with the look of this book. Its all about our show at Leo Koenig Inc. in 2000." - gelatin
