"Outside was published by David Pascoe at the Nawakum Press. The design and engravings are by Barry Moser. The typeface is Nofret, designed by Gudrun Zapf-von Hesse, released by the H. Berthold Type Foundry of Berlin, Germany, in 1984. The papers are Zerkall Book, a mould-made paper from the Zerkall Mills in Kall, Germany, and Gampi Torinoko, a legendary paper handmade in Echizen, Japan at the studio of Mr. Shuji Umeda. It was printed at Horton Tank Graphics in Hadley, Massachusetts, by Arthur Larson using a Vandercook Universal IV. The engravings were printed directly from the blocks on the Gampi Torinoko. The brush calligraphy is by Judythe Seick of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Pam Smith of Abiquiu, New Mexico, designed and made the marbled papers. The bindings and boxes were produced by Craig Jensen at BookLab II, in San Marcos, Texas."--Colophon.
"Of the fifty copies produced, twenty-eight copies are numbered; ten copies, lettered a-j, are hors de commerce; and twelve specially bound copies are identified by Roman numerals." -Colophon.
