"Mud Book" by John Cage and Lois Long

John Cage was born 100 years ago on September 5th.

In celebration of his birthday, the University of Iowa Special Collections & University Archives has shared a small book from their collections: "Mud Book" by John Cage and Lois Long.

A cookbook for the truly imaginative cook and a good-natured satire of art, books, and creation in general, the book gives step by step instructions for making mud pies.
