River Oaks Bookstore Houston, TX.  Casey Stranahan the author and HJ Bott, of HJ Bott: Rhythm and Rhetoric - 40 Years of the DoV Concepts were present to sign the very limited collector's edition at the River Oaks Bookstore.  HJ discovered the DoV 40 years ago and have been devoting his life painting and sculpturing this idea ever since.  This book marked the first mass unveiling of what DoV really is all about.  Illustrated in vivid color are the paintings, the sculptures and the functional robots (really, see page 47-49) that came to fruit from this idea.

This is the cognitive adventure of the last 40 years of modernist HJ Bott.  A Fascinating book and definitely collectable... and my photographs graced the front and the back of the covers :)

Oh yes, if you would like to see a short YouTube interview of HJB about his 1988 sculpture, Canticle for POP! (see page 61), a piece made entirely out of bubblegum, please go HERE.

To the beautiful Casey, to the relentless HJB, to Dee Dee the wise... cheers!Casey Stranahan and HJ Bott "Casey Stranahan provided the text along with Jim Edwards, Kelly Klaasmeyer, and Catherine Anspon and review quotes from many others as well as the photographs of many photographers. I'm very proud of "Rhythm and Rhetoric" (named by Anya Tish and Anne Simpson) with the graphic design by Robin Lazarus and orchestrated by my wife, Margaret (Dee Dee) Bott, printed in Houston, TX, USA by Masterpiece Litho, Inc on recycled paper." - HJ BottRoar Shock Well
