In 1921 Duchamp and Man Ray produced the large, glossy single issue of New York Dada, whose chief glory is its cover, the minute multiple repetition of its title upside down surrounding Duchamp's altered readymade, the perfume bottle Belle Haleine: eau de voilette, with his portrait as Rrose Selavy on the label. A 'letter of authorization' from Tristan Tzara was printed inside, in response to a letter from Gabrielle Buffet to the Dada impressario now stationed in Paris.
