This object consists of a white plastic clam-shell case containing a catalogue raisonné of all Gemini publications through 1970, with 364 illustrations (20 in color), and a text by Riva Castleman [then the Museum's Associate Curator of Prints]. Also included in the box is a 10 1/2 x 8 1/2-inch multiple commissioned for this publication. A two-colored offset lithograph with a collage of three watercolor pads and a brush, the multiple invites you to collaborate with Jasper Johns in creating your own version of his Target alongside a facsimile of Johns' signature.
