“Wayne C. Booth’s lifelong
study of the art of rhetoric
 illuminated the means
 by which authors seduce,
 cajole and lie to their readers
 in the service of narrative.”

New York Times, Oct. 11, 2005

Roberta Smith in a New York Times Christmas Day review of an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art:

“He ends the show with Ed Ruscha’s painting ‘The End.’ But if you consult the brochure, you’ll see that it also lists one final object up above, near the ceiling. This is the green LED exit sign that directs you out of the gallery. The sign, designed by Mark Wamble, Dawn Finley and Ben Thorne of Interloop Architecture, is, like everything else here, in the Modern’s collection. Here, of course, it is also just doing its job.”
