Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass by Edward Ruscha recounted in textual snapshots. The snapshots are taken from modern American literature predating 1968 (they may even be imagined to have influenced Ruscha). They can be read but they can also be looked at: the words are objects in disguise.
Recounted was made as part of the ABCED project realized by ABC Artists' Books Cooperative in celebration of Ed Ruscha's 75th birthday in 2012.
