Rick Silberman says:

“Ball and Jacks was the first art edition ever completed, and commissioned by the MOH. It also may have been the first hologram art edition, in that quantity, which consisted of original plates, that were not pulled from a master, certainly the first commissioned edition of Shadowgrams.”

Gary Zellerbach Collection

This hologram was originally offered for sale through the Museum of Holography, New York, which had a larger version in its permanent collection (now at MIT).

Their 1980 bookstore catalogue pointed out that ‘These bright green multiple exposure “shadowgrams” demonstrate great depth and a delicacy of design.  The ball floats a full 5” in front of the plate, and appears so real that you are tempted to touch it, only to find out that it is, indeed, just focused light’.
