SASE = Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope. In And's intro he writes: "This book is subject to the add to & return mentality of the mail art network." One of the last pages asks the reader to react to:

1. Circus
2. Geranium
3. Gossip
4. Jostle
5. Modernistic
6. Oily
7. Propaganda
8. Rose Bowl
9. Sissy
10. TVA

& to send the responses to an address given for And. The bk concludes w/: "Now that we have entered the age of cheap & ubiquitous digital manipulation of typography & page design, it has become important to document the sheer volume & variety of typestyles one can mix together, even in a slim volume such as this." He then goes on to list 22 "faces" used. "Layout & typography become intrinsic to the act of writing." & this bk's definitely an example of that position.
