Hi Roger,

I don't have catalogs at home to check, but have you tried MoMA and Em Gee?
MoMA has a lot of Lye, but don't know if they have this one. Em Gee always
has surprising items. I'll try to check down at Chicago Filmmakers later
today and will let you know on these if no one else has in the meantime.
