"The most renown series of artist's books in the history of the genre. Ed Ruscha's works still retain their capacity to surprise, delight and puzzle in equal measure. In the several decades since they were published, they have been much exhibited, written about and analysed, yet they somehow are still objects of mystery and fascination, beguiling in their utter simplicity and immutable rightness" (Parr/B.)
