Rub Out The Lines is a book of printed images where each page is a mass of straight lines, curved lines and numbered dots. Some of the lines have been printed using a graphite based ink which can be easily rubbed out using a variety of standard erasers - ie some thick and some fine for detail.

To reveal and enjoy the image, you must rub out the lines which connect the dots together according to a set of instructions.

       Comes with a special pencil. When you make a mistake, you can scribble it all out and start again.

       not terribly original or interesting. how'd you think up this one? (although my favorite graffiti artist "draws" by erasing)

       //not terribly original// meaning someone else has already thought of it, which I will accept and delete accordingly upon your presentation. As for not being interesting - what can I say? We all have different interests.

       + I think it would be fun, esp. if the lines were terribly complicated and overlapping.

       And the 3d version would be a statue packed in clay for you to carefully remove with toothpick and teaspoon?

       Wasn't there a type of kids' lollipop thing where they had to lick away the candy to reveal some kind of toy? Or was that someone's idea elsewhere on the 1/2b? (dog's anno brought this to mind right after the thought of a statue packed in chocolate flew through)
