Three spreads from The Mud Book by composer John Cage and textile designer Lois Long (mid-1950s). Forty pages plus a three-page essay by John Russell that describes the mud pie as “the first working model of all human makings”. Backstory:

Composer Cage and 1918-born textile designer Long collaborated on Mud Book’s original text and artwork one mid ‘fifties autumn evening in Pomona, New York. It was intended as a children’s book with a view to it bringing in some money. Unfortunately they were unable to raise any interest in it. Having rediscovered the moquette in her files, Long showed it to artist Graham Snow, whose dealer, gallery owner David Grob, was enthusiastic. A numbered, signed edition of five hundred concertina-format books was produced in 1983 in conjunction with Tokyo printer Hiroshi Kawanishi…
The illustrations are lovely and simple, with just brown, orange and white being used along with the aforementioned black… There’s a recipe for a mud layer cake, with a depiction of sieving to extract the black pebbles which will form the cake’s filling. A fine double-pager illustrating the mud and water mixing process is rather ab ex, all Pollocky scribbles and drips. Cage and Long also show how to decorate the layer cake, with dried dandelions as candles, for a birthday, and a great spread has the white seeds floating away against a black background after the blowing-out ceremony.
