Portfolio of nine loose etchings using hard-ground etching and spit bite aquatint techniques on Magnani Pescia and colored Gampi papers, including one text page and a colophon, housed in a handmade wood box. The work of Andrea Zittel has many aspects and falls into many categories. She is a painter, sculptor, architect, carpenter, building contractor, seamstress, evolutionary biologist, graphic designer, fashion designer, anthropologist, inventor, social scientist, educator, research psychologist, and nutritionist. "Rules of Raugh" (a made up word, as in raw) is the artist’s comprehensive philosophy relating to objects and their usage. The primary questions addressed range over aspects of the relationship of humans to notions such as wear, obsolescence, adaptability, ease, progress, and expertise. The illustrations depict furniture designs for a house—multi-use objects for dining areas, bedrooms, kitchens, and workrooms are rendered as specific articles with their functions distilled to the essentials. Edition of 20 copies.
