"These drawings, using parallel lines closely drawn, were used to make a finite series. They also provided the vocabulary for further series. Later four colors were used with the four lines. The directions of the lines (vertical, horizontal, and two 45-drgree diagonals) were absolute possibilities. The colors used were the three primary colors (yellow, red and blue) plus black. The page was white. Superimpositions of line and color provided progressive gradations of tone and color. In 1969 Peter Townsed, the editor of Studio International, published a book in which I made each page as a single variation, making a complete, finite series. later the color version of this book was published in 1971 by the Lisson Gallery London" (Lewitt/Legg).
