This glossy booklet unfolds to form a 10-panel announcement for the show and features a poem by Frank O'Hara interspersed with images from the exhibition.

The exhibition featured Oranges (eight oils on paper by Hartigan); Stones (12 lithographs by Rivers and O'Hara); portraits of O'Hara by both Hartigan and Rivers; and a portfolio of lithographs from the press of Universal Limited Art Editions.

A rather uncommon bit of New York School ephemera. SCARCE.
