What Printed Matter wrote: "Reissue of an artist book/film by Antwerp performer, painter, filmmaker, holographer and Fluxus wildcat Ludo Mich, hand drawn in 1966, printed in 1972. Mich would draw a couple of pages a day in a room painted completely black with only a white paper on the floor, the book (or film, as he always saw it) is a wonderfully poetic and generously personal documentation of movement..."
