The title and work so labeled relate to the epic book Let Us Now Praise Famous Men (1941) the collaboration of writer James Agee and photographer Walker Evans. See the raised letters of the New Zealand Agee jar – and parts of the once ubiquitous yellow Kodak photo paper box – these two elements used to reference Agee and Evans. The beautiful design of the dee’s black & white 4 oz Ice Cream cup displayed inside the Agee jar is itself referencing and in reverence to the beauty of James Agee’s text (black & white) and the beautiful black & white photos of Walker Evans in Let Us Now Praise Famous Men The Agee and Ice Cream cup of dee’s also relates to the beauty of the New Zealand All Blacks Logo.
