  • Notes: Special issue of 2nd no. of Roth's periodical Poetrie. Consists of 20 envelopes of clear soft plastic on which the text is printed. The envelopes contain orange-colored paste, now largely dessicated. Top and bottom envelopes contain sheets of clear plexiglas, forming the covers. Envelopes are separated at the inner margins by narrow strips of plexiglas, through which 3 holes have been drilled for brass screws that hold the book together. Because of these plexiglas strips, the spine is wider than the foredge (8 cm. vs. 1 cm.), giving the piece the appearance of a wedge of orange cheese encased in clear plastic.
