This volume is an exhibition catalog that was produced for shows at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, and for the Pasadena Museum of California Art."This visual debris from contemporary pop culture contains the specific archetypes that formed my consciousness while living in this particular period in history. I often find archetypes in old children's books and toys, so these things make up a large part of my collection. I am attracted to things that evoke memories from childhood." - Mark Ride
