"In order to collect the secrets for Secrets, [Rogers] printed postcards inviting friends, acquaintances, coworkers and passers-by to her website ... where she had set up an anonymous guestbook-cum-blog ... She received a passel of secrets ... And then she turned to the physical book. How do you print in invisible ink? ... Johanna had to invent a process. After some trial and error, she settled upon silkscreen as her printing method and formulated her own archival, untraceable-in-daylight, invisible ink using acrylic matte medium as a base for a pre-existing ink that fluoresces in blacklight ... Only then did she begin the gargantuan task of formatting the text, building the covers, assembling the paper, silk-screening each page individually, and constructing an edition of large-scale books"--Editor's foreword, p. 8-9.
