"The prints also contain another form of commentary; a parallel text embedded in the images; a poetic gloss deriving (as does A humument) from W.H. Mallock's A human document, a Victorian novel that is here plundered and 'treated' anew ... the following graphic techniques have been used:-silkscreen, etching, blind intaglio, mezzotint, stone lithography, plate lithography, four colour offset lithography, letterpress, plus various combinations of these with occasional hand additions ... Each canto uses three sheets (i.e. twelve pages) ... [and] has a thematic frontispiece and three images"--Dante's Inferno (Waddington Galleries, 1983), Introduction.
