Comments on the Collection

I am a new collector with a small but expanding collection. I teach art history and have recently returned to graduate school to study English literature. My tastes in art and architecture veer toward the modern, and this is reflected in my ML collection. I am focusing upon ML editions from the late 1960s which I appreciate for the bold and colorful graphics as well as on editions from the late 1970s which appeal to me due to the minimalistic color palette and graphic design.
