Summary "In 1954, a few weeks after I returned to New York from six years in Paris, a friend of the author Siegfried Gideon gave me a prototype book with blank pages--a publisher's dummy--which I used as Sketchbook 23 (Drawings on a Bus). The original book was published in 1928, and the cover was designed by Moholy-Nagy"--Statement by artist, p. before colophon.
