A Bell is a Cup has been published by Rainoff to coincide with the exhibition "Impressionism" by Matt Connors, held at MoMA PS1, New York. Alongside texts by Peter Eleey, Michel Leiris, Gertrude Stein and Jack Spicer, the publication presents the first comprehensive gathering of Connors' work to date. In his essay, Eleey writes that Connors' paintings "bear traces of one another, but they also some- times prop each other up or lean into each other, as if to physically reinforce, in painterly terms, Jack Spicer’s ideas about the interdependence of poems. 'There is really no single poem,' Spicer came to believe; he argued that 'poems should echo and re-echo against each other.'"

Four different colours for both the dust jacket and cover have been produced. This allows each dust jacket to be interchanged to create a new color combination. Sixteen different color combinations can be created in total.
