    Forbes magazine, January 21, 2002 featured an article called "Lucre in
the Library" -- about artists' books.  Quoting this information: "In
1970,...artist Edward Rucha...made a paperback called REAL ESTATE
OPPORTUNITIES".  Its 25 b/w photos showed weed-choked suburban lots, crooked
for sale signs and rundown tract houses.  With a print run of 4,000 and a
price tag of $3.50, this bit of pop art embodied a radical idea: that art,
instead of being only for the rich, could be disseminated to the masses
cheaply."  Bottom line: the book recently sold for $500.
    Morey Chaplick, chairman of hip Interactive is an avid collector.  A few
famous names of artists involved in art books: Sol LeWitt, Richard Tuttle,
Richard Long. Martin Puryear.
    Keep the faith!
