New York artist Ted Stamm's (1944–84) focused use of the color black included everything from minimalist canvases to the graffiti-like interventions he staged around New York in the 1970s. This book, the first major publication on Stamm, features a selection of paintings, works on paper, stencils and photographs from his acclaimed Wooster series, inspired by the street in New York on which the artist lived and worked until his untimely death in 1984.

A sketchbook facsimile, DRM 1980 documents the rigorous thought process of Brooklyn-born minimalist painter Ted Stamm (1944–84) as he explores color within a series of 36 studies for a single composition.
The warmth of these intimate works stands in contrast to the stately severity of his shaped canvasses, though lacking none of their masterly precision.
