In the mid-1950s, the legendary avant-garde composer John Cage and artist Lois Long created a truly marvelous object. Part artist's book, part cookbook, and part children's book,Â ï»¿ï»¿Mud Bookï»¿ is a spirited, if not satirical, take on almost every child's first attempt at cooking and making. Through the humble mud pie - add dirt and water! - Cage and Long encourage children to explore their imagination and get their hands dirty, and they offer this warning: "Mud pies are to make and look at, not to eat."
