Dieter rot wrote me from reykjavik, iceland: They are part of a group of books I made in the year 1962 out of a bunch of Daily Mirrors_. _Instead of showing quality ( surprising quality) we show quantity ( surprising quantity). I got the idea ( Quantity instead of Quality) in this way: _QUALITY_ in Business (f.i. advertising) is just a subtle way of being Quantity-minded. Quality in advertising wants expansion and ( in the end) power = Quantity. So, let us produce Quantities for once!_The editor. This copy has being shipped to 'De Heer H. de Leuw in Amsterdam.. DR.
