Re: Artist Book Collection at The Museum of Modern Art

I believe you may have had a typo in directing folks to the Flaxman Library
of the Art Institute. which is on the east side of Michigan Avenue and
actually backs on Grant Park, the Goodman Theater, and eventually, Lake
Michigan.  Both Wabash and Monroe run east and west and run into or cross
Michigan avenue.  However, Wabash and Monroe are not contiguous one to
another.  At least one more east-west street separates them, Jackson
Boulevard.  Thus, the Flaxman Library could not be on the corner of Wabash
and Monroe.
