Ruggero writes: “I knew Ray by mail in 1975. I'm happy to participate in this great project dedicated to him. On my card I have reproduced an image realized by me and him for his well-known ADD & SEND BACK sheets. Surprisingly he drew himself in a bathtub many years before his final choice.”

I have sent 500 postcard editions on various paper types. Each of the cards is unique and contains my original artwork in reference to A Book About Death. The faces of these prints feature four different motifs, some of which are hand-embellished at random on the reverse. Some cards feature doodles, my signature, stickers or text; they vary in degrees of uniqueness and rarity akin to trading cards. I appreciate the way that your work upholds Ray Johnson's legacy and am very honored to participate in this exhibition.

The title is "A True and Perfect Inventory–January 1, 1730"

It is based on an excerpt from the inventory of possessions recorded at the death of a distant ancestor, Dr. Ludolph Bodein, a Quaker residing in Kent County on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
