Cubic Limit I - 1973-1975 and parts of Cubic Limit II - 1976-1977
The 12 edges of the Cube are used as an Alphabet

These programs were developed from earlier programs, for example from "Sphereless", P128 (1972) where I generated
signs from a less complex fixed structure, the square, using it's 4 sides and it's 2 diagonals as the alphabet.
See also, Drawings, 1970-1973, directly related to Cubic Limit I (early cube drawings,
squares with missing edges, triangles with missing edges, early algorithms which add and subtract lines).

- The following works (1973-1975) from this workphase were first published in the catalog:
   Manfred Mohr, "Cubic Limit", Galerie Weiller, Paris, May 1975
  see review of this show by Conil Lacoste in Le Monde, July 3, 1975
- The art pieces (1976-1977), using similar algorithms, were published in the first part of the catalog:
  Manfred Mohr, "Dessins Génératifs - Cubic Limit II", Galerie Weiller, Paris, October 1977
