It's hard to say how many copies of this incredible collection were sold
but my guess would be, not many. They were at first glance an expensive
investment for a book. What people didn't appreciate was the fact that
each "book" contained dozens and dozens of signed very limited prints
each suitable for framing. My copy was a gift, and one of my favorites.
From the humorous use of the double entendre "Lucy relaxed considerably
once she understood the big bang theory", to the prophetic " the
information brought by the generals was 97% fact free", the book is just
One example of Tom Bostelle’s versatility. For an artist that spent
most of his life expressing himself with a paint-brush, it is amazing
how well he could use words as well to articulate his thoughts.
