INDEX

 
This is an index directed to people interested in the details of a specific work or in a single theme or technique, for which the list of works is cross referenced. The index is structured with the most recent works appearing first. It ends with a brief guide to the early works, or juvenilia. At the time each work was completed, a prospectus was produced in tandem to help describe the edition in absence of the artist and as an aid to cataloguers. These were kept necessarily short, often not exceeding one typed page. This digital index is an opportunity to provide additional information, including corrections, or errata. An effort has been made to elaborate more fully on the process of each book. The process pieces used to create each work have been donated to Special Collections in the Rhode Island School of Design Library (USA) for future access.
A smaller selection of process materials is housed in the British Library.
