1959. Artist's book, published in an edition of approximately 150 copies. Monotype lettersets allowed Roth to orient single typographic elements in any direction, and to exercise an interest in mirroring and symmetry by using the characters d, b, p, and q to make inverse and reverse versions of themselves. In "bok 1956-1959", language becomes divorced from meaning, and its parts become abstract compositional elements, selected for aesthetic rather than linguistic value. . 20 x 21 cm(7 7/8 x 8 1/4 inches)
