Nine Swiming Pools and a good investment
I fell in love with Ed Rucha's books in the 1960s. I bought several and my favorite was "Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass." I never paid more than a few dollars for each of them. Recently I parted with "Nine Swimming Pools." It was valued at $1200. That represented a lot of canvas, paper and paint to me. It just shows you, it pays to invest in art.
