Catalogue raisonné

Image of cover of book, with spine piece visible. Title and author appear as though they were written with pencil; the font of the title has been drafted to seem dimensional. The remaining text, rendered in black, follows the bottom edge of the image. The cover is illustrated with a line drawing of a five-story building. The surrounding book cover is yellow. The cover has been made to appear worn, and an enlarged fingerprint is visible on the upper right corner of the image.
