"These photographic compositions by Vittorugo Contino are of places and things recorded in my Pisan Cantos, places that I first saw in 1898 thanks to my great-aunt Frank. My seeing them again in 1968 was due to the initiative and energy of Contino who has shown remarkable persistence in trying to make the selection as significant as possible [...] Asked for a title for the book I suggested "Spots and Dots", i.e. "locations and punctuations"' (Pound's 'Introduction').
