THE JARGON SOCIETY, INC. December 15, 19 82 Highlands Dear Bill, I drove down to Heritage Printers in Charlotte last week and went over the details of a wrap-around jacket to cover up the ugliness of what Doyle Moore produced. I also have Superior Printing doing the image of Hartley and Traubel on coated stock. They will be tipped in over the offensive washed-out frontispiece. Those two things done, the book will be just about decent enough to offer to the world, which, though it has become unused to quality, deserves it occasionally. The hiatus has allowed for proper flaps and ON ART, by Marsden Hartley, receives a paragraph. I am enjoying his pieces on Ryder, Kane, Avery, and Demuth and will read most of the book. I fear the book could look better than it does, I had a good telephone conversation with Ben Raeburn of HORIZON PRESS. We haven't met in many years, but he says I am his favorite publisher— a real compliment from that distinguished gent. Since their book is already out, there seemed no way to tie-in, as they say, but HEART'S GATE ought to benefit from the attention that ON ART receives. Don't forget about the list of review and comp copies, one copy to David Wilk and one copy to me. I imagine we'll be getting them out towards the end of January. INLAND BOOK COMPANY will send you some of the altered copies. Well, I need to squeeze about $50,000 out of the great American turnip to help pay off printers. The prospect is not very interesting. Cheers, /^—^ )
