An American artist's book The Museum of Modern Art described thusly in an exhibition of the author's works: "In The Waste Maker, which Porter considered his most successful artist’s book, he repurposed the visual information Americans are bombarded with—newspaper articles, magazine ads, standardized tests, scientific documents, musical scores, junk mail, and instruction booklets. The juxtaposition of image and text emphasizes the ridiculousness and wastefulness of all this information." Item #140938222
