This book is based on the words/work of John Waters from an exhibition in Baltimore:
"This is a weirdly Baltimore-based work," Waters said.
"Many years ago, there was a real sign for a real art school in Baltimore on St. Paul Street below 25th Street. It said, 'Study Art for profit or hobby,' which is about the most politically incorrect thing you can say if you're an artist. I loved the sign and was astounded by it. It was completely unironic, and I decided to parody it."
And Peter decided to interpret it.
