"Diter Rot's unique talents suggested, when the idea of devoting a Copley monograph to his work was first discussed, that the Rot book could be art, in his terms, rather than a critical evaluation and survey of past achievements. His reaction to our proposal is this assemblage of printed matter. Its pages are a kind of visual diary squirted out during three years of spasmodic labor in fulfillment of a scheme outlined in a letter dated 19 July 62 which prefaces the book."--Richard Hamilton, introductory pamphlet.
