" ... published by Brighton Press, San Diego, California, in 2008 ... The text was hand set in Bembo and printed on Twinrocker handmade paper. Some of the poems appeared originally in 25 caprichos after Goya, published as the first installment of a longer work (Kadle Books, Barcelona/Tenerife, Spain, 2004). The images were printed in both intaglio and relief on Kozo and Rives de Lin papers. Nelle Martin did all of the printing at Brighton Press. The book was bound in custom-made Twinrocker paper. It is housed in a clamshell box covered in hand painted linen, with a sculpture mounted on it. The edition is limited to 40 signed and numbered books"--Colophon.
"A collaboration between Ian Tyson and Jerome Rothenberg, whose projects together span the past several decades. About this response to Francisco de Goya's Diasters of war, Tyson says, "The intention of the design and images was to reflect teh feeling of political and social menace in the Goya etchings which is still pertinent today. I have used the vertical and horizontal to suggest enclosed space--cells, gallows, prisons"--Brighton Press 2014 catalog and price list, page 13,
