The title abbreviations Com.Mix. stand for Communication Mixture. This book presents mainly typographic images that Kriwet collected from the American and German landscapes, e.g., signs on store fronts, directional signs, trade marks, TV screens, ideograms and logos. He also utilized multiple illustrations of early texts, maps, illustrations, ancient languages and symbols and related them to analogous contemporary images. For example, Kriwet juxtaposed one of his concrete poems arranged as a mandala with an early German poem also written this way. Another category of illustrations are documentary photographs of Kriwet working on his installation projects. Several photographs show, "Walk Talk," a work held by the Sackner Archive. The images are fully documented with notes of reference for each illustration.
