The open End
Innovative in design, Independence, The Open End features removable pages that can be superimposed over each other to create seemingly endless patterns. It was generally agreed that one could never really “finish” the book. Expensive to produce, the book has only been published sporadically in limited quantities, and is somewhat of a collector’s item. In 2004 Paul Hose travelled to New York and bought the last copies of the original print run. These copies are now for sale here at thebestdrumbooks.com! At the request of Chapin himself, this book will never be printed again.
