    In a letter accompanying the publication, Joe Studholme writes: "If you display or sell individually Video Disques without motor unit, use a black ultraviolet light. They work marvellously statically as well as kinetically."
    -- quoted in Editions Alecto: Original graphics, multiple originals 1990-1981, ed. Tessa Sidey, p. 212
