"...Babycakes, connects with the birth of Ruscha's son in 1968. The first image in the book is of Edward Joseph Ruscha V., weighing 15 pounds, 8 ounces. This baby portrait is followed by twenty-one phptographs of - what else - cakes! All the confections, like the infant, are captioned with their weights, from 1 1/2 ounces to pounds, 12 ounces, but arranged in random order. The photographs, which appear on the right-hand pages, vary slightly in size, making the book more like a family album and less standard in format than the earlier books. Babycakes was published by Multiples, Inc., the publishing arm of New York's Marian Goodman Gallery, and appeared in its 1970 portfolio, Artists & Photographs..." (Engber Philpot 2001; pag. 71).
