Legend

1. A statement, often on a stock certificate, indicating the restrictions of ownership on the share. Many stocks do not have legends, but those that do usually place them directly on the certificate. Others include the legend on a separate document that is traded along with the stock.

2. On a chart, an explanation of the symbols used. For example, given a candlestick chart, a legend may say that white candles represent trading days with gains and black candles represent trading days with losses.

Even more surprising is that each project--such as a wooden box containing six legendary Japanese photography publications from the '60 and '70s, and a limited edition of MoiVer's 1931 experimental photo-book Paris--is a straight reproduction; that is to say, one of the masters of art-fashion assimilations has allowed the original creation to stand for itself (even when MIT Press issued a handsome reprint of Vladimir Mayakovski's For the Voice, the focus was more on scholarly essays than on the book itself).
