As New in publishers shrink wrap
What is a table?"" Lawrence Weiner asks the question that has held his interest since his earliest days of art making. Neither storybook, nor autobiography, nor reference book, 'Something to put Something on' is rather a questioning book, endowed with its makers celebrated wordly wit and aimed at engaging young readers, among others, in an inquiry that has spanned a lifetime. Weiner wields his red, blue, and orange letterforms and graphic figures to take up the question of a human beings relationship to objects and teases the reader into looking at a table in an entirely new light.
