Off the shelf: Me 4
Here Pavlov is trying to explain to his dogs how they’re supposed to associate the ringing of a bell with food. They’re not really taking it in. Eventually he has to try a different approach.
The idea was to print 50 copies of the book with offset litho. It was all very last-minute, so I didn't prepare the artwork in the right way and several of the printing plates turned out to be unusable. Some of them were redone and some I ended up scratching into to add some missing lines, as there was so little time left. The bookbinder managed to bind up at least 20 of the books in the wrong order and didn’t finish the rest until the day after the private view.
People told me such things were entirely normal.
