Various Blank Pages makes reference to the pages left intentionally blank in Ed Ruscha's highly influential and oft-imitated artist's books of which Nine Swimming Pools, A Few Palm Trees, and Various Small Fires are examples. With their homage, Doro Boehme and Eric Baskauskas aim to acknowledge the significance of Ruscha's work in the larger canon or artist-designed publications and specifically in the holdings of the Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, which receives recognition in the book's final image.
