"Contains twelve photographic images made by means of the Talbot-Klic photogravure process. The chrome-faced copper plates were made by Jon Goodman and Richard Benson in Newport, Rhode Island. Eleven plates were made using the dust-grain technique and one plate (Three pears and an apple) using a specially prepared screen. The plates were hand pulled on the presses of the Atelier de Taille Douce of Saint-Prex, Switzerland. The texts by Beaumont Newhall and Mary Calderone have been set in Monotype Bembo and printed by the Stinehour Press, Lunenburg, Vermont, and are signed by the authors. The design is by Wendy Byrne. The edition is limited to one thousand examples and one hundred artists proofs. Numbers 1-500 and I-L were printed on three-hundred-gram Rives BFK. Numbers 501-1000 and LI-C are to be printed on three-hundred-gram Papier Duchene from the Moulin de Larroque. The portfolio cases, bound in Indian tussah silk and Curtis Tweedweave paper, were made by Brick and Ballerstein, New York." --Colophon.
