She had over five hundred clippings of images from newspapers, catalogues, weekly newsmagazines, and the like in an accordion file in her studio. Very few of them were ever incorporated into her art works, and even then it was usually only a partial incorporation. But I think she needed to feel that if and when she wanted to include something of which she did not have personal knowledge or a clear memory, she could go to an image of it in order to see it three-dimensionally with her minds eye.
The car here shows how literal a transcriber she could be when she wanted to, but only in the interests of a more meaningful total image.
