Produced as part of the ABCED project realized by ABC Artists’ Books Cooperative in celebration of Ed Ruscha’s 75th birthday in 2012, the title recounts Ed Ruscha's Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass in "textual snapshots". The found texts are taken from modern American literature predating 1968, almost presupposing them as an influence on Ruscha.
The book was available for one year only, until December 2013, when Ruscha turned 76.
