Ruth Sackner, RIP

Miami art collector Ruth Sackner died over the weekend, at the age of 79.

Together with her husband, Marvin, she assembled a collection of over seventy-five thousand pieces of concrete poetry and text art. Typewriter works from their collection is the subject of a book out later this month, called The Art of Typewriter (a copy arrived last week and a review will be posted here in the new few days).
