"In 1934 Marcel Duchamp - or more accurately his alter ego Rrose Sélavy - published in green felt covered boxes ninety-four loose notes relating to the development and function of his magnum opus The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors Even, known familiarly as ‘The Large Glass’ (figs.1, 2). As well as being perceived as a kind of literary publication, the Green Box, as it has become known, can be - but seldom is - classified as a work of art in fine print." [1]
