You'll be interested in knowing that when we reproduced a photo by
Lola Alvarez Bravo in the Multicultural Art Print Series (distributed by
Crystal Productions), we left in scratches that were on the print and
hairs that were in it. We even asked a few questions about them. The
work is "De Generacion en Generacion" and if you have a chance, take
a close look at it.

We really need un"touched-up" reproductions. What's the NY studio that
reproduces them? Anyone know? Kids need to see the pentimentos and
holidays, the rough edges, frays, dirt and smears in art. Not the
dehumanized art of Ortega Y Gasset and the idealists with appropriate
distance and tight unachievable perfection. Well, I suppose SOME of us
NEED that. But I'm putting my two cents in for the un"improved".
