From the Study of Distortions Series 1973-1979, published as part of the Visual Studies Workshop Press Artists' Book Series. With a list of plates, including 29 drawings created specially for this book, by Denes, a Hungarian-born American conceptual artist. Topographical projections of the globe onto Denes' chosen forms: the pyramid, the cube, the dodecahedron; the donut (tangent torus), the egg (sinusoidal ovoid), the snail (helical toroid), the lemon, the hot dog, and the geoid. Includes several intricate series of line drawings layered over consecutive transparent pages. The project is, in the artist's words, "a tantalizing game if one learns to read between coordinates and doesn't mind making sport of the human predicament." Bewilderingly compelling.
