Igor’s Goriest Tune and Selected Text Pieces

To observe my 50th birthday in 1982, I conceived Igor’s Goriest Tune and sent it out to friends, colleagues and family members. In 1987 IGT became part of a limited edition of graphic–texts—IMAGE: a collection (with four pieces of mine and works by Jim Randall, Bob Paredes, Jane Coppock, Ben Boretz, and Catherine Schieve; the first publication of OPEN SPACE in 1989 was IMAGE ).
