According to popular belief, there were no urinals in museums and art galleries before 1917. Allegedly, Marcel Duchamp was the first to introduce one of these useful objects into an exhibition space. Nearly a century later they are ubiquitous. This book presents a selection of the finest art museum urinals. 'Fountains' is an extended version of 'Peed' that was published in 2012 as a contribution to ABCED, an ABC Artists' Books Cooperative project in celebration of Ed Ruscha's seventy-fifth birthday.
