|The first major publication of The Artichoke Press, now considered a classic of photographic publishing. Wynn Bullock's last images and ideas, printed letterpress on Fabriano handmade paper, with the six photographs and frontispiece portrait printed by hand from copper halftone plates.
|Wynn Bullock (1902–1975) was one of the leading figures of 20th-century photography. Jonathan L. Clark worked closely with him to develop the concept for this book, and spared no pains in creating an elegant presentation of the text and photographs.

Pressmarks specially drawn by Valenti Angelo. Edition of 200 numbered copies, each bearing the initials of Wynn Bullock. (Only 100 copies completed to date.)
