Fifty copies of the book were printed on 160gms Arches cover white paper using 16pt Lutetia Roman and Italic types. The book is 13 x 7 inches and numbers 12 pages using a tri-fold structure. One each of the seven poems written about major artists of the 1930’s (Paul Klee, Marc Chagalll, Georges Braque, Jacques Villon, Juan Gris, Pablo Picasso, and Joan Miro) was given to selected artists who created an image based on the poem. The images were printed for the book using relief and silkscreen incorporating the poems in English and French and printed letterpress. Color and design work together to move the reader through the pages, accentuating the time-based aspect of the work. It is bound on boards with an Italian linen spine and tan book cloth with an accompanying slipcase.
