tiny brochure for a 1945 alexander calder exhibition in ny, with a series of tiny notational sketches of each of the sculpture. the checklist also includes some paintings (wish they were pictured...) and drawings. i've always liked the way sculptors notate their finished works in drawing form, somehow feeling like moving backwards. of course, the titles are wonderful... especially something from 1945 called "scarlet digitals"...
