The lively spirit and busy fingers of

Alfred Jarry and Rube Goldberg live-on

to this day out of the Catskills of New York

and its very own Mikhail Horowitz via

Ancient Baseball, where Mikhail has long worked

his workshop of collages. No easy-street photoshoppy

stuff here. Each collage from baseball land, includng

"Babe (Ruth) in the Manger" were done with old-school

finesse — hand wrought cut & paste w/scissors,

straight-edge razors please, and whiff the

room with paper cement.

Ah, it does make a style and grace.
