I need t-shirt #25 if I can get it for the $1.32 that remains (I'd like to spend the entire $50.00 as established by the Washtenaw County edition of Lexicon 97.
The Washtenaw County edition of 97 discarded t-shirts that yielded both a freeform book and 97 t-shirt skeleton byproducts were not photographed in their original thrift store purchase form —I both regret that oversight and am surprised (embarrassed also) by it, considering the emphasis that Limited Fork Theory places on documentation.
This time, before mining the t-shirts for their lexicon in order to make the Athens, Ohio freeform book, I photographed the 24 discarded t-shirts that I purchased for $48.68 at Goodwill, an average of approximately $2.03 per discarded t-shirt.
As with the Washtenaw County freeform book edition, I do not know the stories behind the t-shirts that have marked them in various ways. There are some indicators not available on the 97 discarded Washtenaw t-shirts concerning the age of some of the discarded t-shirts: dates in the t-shirt's lexicon marking events that the shirt advertises. This information may provide small insights into t-shirt manufacturing practices at the time of the making of the date-marked discarded t-shirts.
If you recognize any of the 24 discarded T-shirts purchased
and send the story of your discarded t-shirt memory and/or any other information related to any of the 24 rescued Athens, Ohio Goodwill T-shirts. Thank you.

**before the lexical mining operation**
Not the initial condition of these t-shirts, but their as sold condition that marks the initial condition of my collaboration with the t-shirts, an as sold condition that collaborated with the complex mechanisms of my preferences, leading to selection for purchase.
Fronts and backs of the 24 t-shirts rescued from the Goodwill thrift store on State Street in Athens, Ohio on the last day of the Athens International Film Festival are shown unless the front or back has no lexicon available for extraction.
About 77 miles north of the Goodwill thrift store in Athens is the Goodwill Art Studio and Gallery, a facility I shall contact about a 97-minute display (without charge to the Goodwill Art Studio and Gallery; instead, I will make a donation beyond display should I be fortunate enough to negotiate a 97-minute (or possibly longer) installation. I will also contact Ohio University for another possible 97-minute [or longer] installation.
