Many of the pages of this book are set in paper "picture frames" of the same color. The frames and pages are embellished by understated and quite fine gilt designs. A number of the serigraphs are beautiful in there hughes of yellow, gilt, salmon, aqua and gay. The serigraph pictures are as evocative as they are beautiful.

The clam-shell box is made of fine gray board. This copy is one of 10 A.P. of an edition of 75 copies.
