Text by the artist:
Looking through the "Wishbook" (Sears Roebuck Fall and Winter 1963 Catalogue) to a song by George Fromby ("You can't fool me") and an old American TV-commercial ("The cleanest clean under the sun is Tide Clean"), the girl on page 326 ("The Pettipant ... delightfully feminine") materializes tempting with kisses. Wishful thinking or ... "You can't fool me"?
