  In Sitney's Eyes Upside Down he briefly writes about the evolution of Brakhage's planned The Book of the Film, particularly about a shift in a 1989-(ish?) catalog in which the films previously thought to be part of the aforementioned compendium (Scenes...,Weir-Falcon, Songs, Sincerity/Duplicity, etc.) were grouped under the new title The Book of Family. The Book of (the) Film was then used for a compendium including The Art of Vision, The Romans/Arabics/ Egyptians, Visions in Meditation and "future work". Does anybody know if this new incarnation was explicated elsewhere (either at the time or later down the road) and/or if further titles were added? Thanks.
