"Signed limited edition of sixty books printed hot-wax and letterpress. The wax process was originally conceived by the artist Jean-Claude Loubierès who undertook all the main wax areas of design on the pages at his studio in France. The poem was written ... from the multitude of images put forward by the artist, the design and a method of production were planned by Victoria Bean and Ron King. The final wax and letterpress printings, collation and binding were carried out at Circle Press by Ron King, Karen Bleitz and Rachel Hazell."--Colophon.
